TLT has advised EDF Energy, part of one of Europe's largest energy companies, on the complex land assembly legal issues relating to developments associated with Hinkley Point C, the UK’s first new nuclear reactor for more than 20 years.
The TLT team advised on a significant proportion of the different real estate contracts needed to complete the land assembly project for Hinkley Point C’s associated development sites, making it possible for the necessary and vital infrastructure to be developed in and around the Somerset site. With a construction site covering 175 hectares, this is the first piece of national infrastructure on this scale to be approved under the new 2008 Planning Act.
The TLT team led by Tim Rowe, a real estate partner says, "We have been working closely with EDF Energy for over two years and we are delighted to have advised on what is a fundamentally groundbreaking project for the UK and of strategic importance for our client."
Tim was supported by commercial property associates Helena Roach and Charlotte Takeuchi, and commercial property solicitor, David Hobbs.
In 2011, TLT was appointed by EDF Energy to advise on a broad range of legal areas including corporate and commercial, litigation, property and employment, pensions and incentives work.
