    Cleantech & Renewable Energy Legal Services

Technological innovation is driving rapid changes in the renewable energy and Cleantech sectors.

Energy generation costs are falling and energy efficiency is rising, leading to renewable energy becoming an ever more important part of the generation mix. Cleantech developments are also leading to transformation and disruption in a host of sectors, from transport to construction.

However, as the sector moves away from government-backed to privately financed projects commercial risks remain for operators, investors and other stakeholders.

The regulatory environment for renewable energy is also changeable and successfully completing projects requires an understanding of the legal, financial and regulatory key issues that may impact your plans.

Whether you are a sponsor, operator, lender or landowner, our team can advise you on all aspects of renewable energy projects.

The team is multi-disciplinary including corporate, commercial, banking, intellectual property, planning, regulatory and litigation lawyers. We can advise you on a range of transactions and operational issues such as:
