Security of energy supply and the reduction of green house gases by the production of renewable and “green” energy are key issues affecting businesses and consumers alike.
The energy sector is not only highly competitive but also heavily regulated making it both challenging and complex. Our energy team can advise on both the legal and commercial issues which arise on a wide range of energy related projects and deals.
