Utilities & Energy
Our Energy team is recognised by The Chambers UK Guide in Energy and Natural Resources as a “sharp commercial team”, praising it for “combining a good transactional sense with a knowledge of the customs and machinations of the local system”.
We primarily act on development and construction projects for a range of energy companies, whether new entrants or established multinationals. In addition, we have a strong reputation for wind farm and pipeline work.
Noted for his understated yet effective manner, Stephen Cross receives praise for his work in advising companies and lenders on energy projects. Karen Blair is noted for her skill at the intersection of energy and environment issues: “She has a sixth sense in spotting potential problems in a project”.
We can deliver advice in the following areas:
- Construction and financing of wind farms
- planning advice;
- licensing for mineral exploration and excavation;
- generating and supply contracts;
- regulatory advice
