ENERGY

Our Energy practice is multi-disciplinary. We are experienced in advising on all aspects of investments and developments in the renewable and mainstream energy markets, including debt and equity project financings and EPC and O&M agreements.
 

We have an expertise in advising on the complex and legislative and regulatory framework, compliance with which is pre-requisite to all projects in the start-up, operation and maintenance phases. Application procedures for environmental, production and connection licenses are a discipline in itself. The Dispute Resolution team undertakes litigation arising from projects as well as representing clients before the authorities in relation to compliance matters.

Our broad experience in international transactions gives us a competitive edge in this sector, where deals often involve foreign investors, banks and construction, operation and maintenance contractors.

The team’s expertise in dealing with the local complexities in tandem with international considerations, places it in an ideal position to assist all active players in the market.
