Providing specialist legal advice and support to the Energy and renewable industry

Whether within utilities, major renewables developers or large commercial law firms, our lawyers have worked extensively as integral parts of many renewable and energy projects, including offshore and onshore wind, solar, biomass, AD and thermal plants.

As befits the sector and our name, our service takes a renewed, dynamic and innovative approach to the provision of legal support. Yes, we offer the expertise that you would expect from a traditional on-call law firm. However, we add to that the flexiblity of experienced in-house renewable energy specialist lawyers who are able to work within your business or project.

A business model in the Client’s best interests

Our lawyers have worked for large commercial firms and in-house for large businesses, purchasing legal support from external practices. Our experience gives us a clear understanding of how law firms operate and what clients want. Unfortunately, there is often a gap between the two. Our solution:
Experience
Costs

We offer highly experienced and knowledgeable solicitors who are specialists in the energy sector generally – and in renewables / distributed generation in particular, whether a client is looking for a solicitor to:

  • fulfil a role acting as their in-house counsel (a role we fulfil for a number of developer clients);
  • slot into their project team (an offering that has proved to be particularly attractive in the offshore wind sector); or
  • provide traditional, remote legal services.

Each of our solicitors has over ten years’ post-qualification energy experience, often in both a private practice and in-house environment; most have over twenty years’.

Investing time at our own cost with your staff to understand what is important from a commercial, practical and cultural perspective. A flexible approach to meet your business needs, including on-site resource available as required. Cost efficiency and savings: our charging mechanisms will reflect a commitment to you. Fixed/capped rates to encourage broader involvement in and identification/mitigation of risk across your business practices. Our in-house experience of appointing, managing and optimising external legal resource – reducing business expense by close involvement with and cost control of external legal spend. A national UK presence with lawyers working on projects throughout England, Wales and Scotland.
