Clean energy

When it comes to clean energy, we know what we’re talking about. We’ve been involved in the sector for over 20 years, advising on a wide range of projects including those which combine multiple technologies, energy storage, and electric vehicles and their associated charging infrastructure, for a variety of different organisations.

Our experienced legal team is one of the few that can provide UK-wide legal advice, supporting projects in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Our dual-qualified clean technology specialists can also provide advice in the Republic of Ireland.

Our clients span the sector, from high growth entrepreneurial companies to large utilities. We act for all parties involved in successful projects including developers, banks, equity investors, contractors and suppliers.

We have also advised government departments in relation to the implementation and operation of energy efficiency and renewables policy, and have been instrumental in tackling the legal issues around energy storage projects and have experience of advising across the project life-cycle.
