With over 200 lawyers working in this sector, we can support your transaction in virtually any part of the world including the UK, Central and Eastern Europe, Western Europe, the Middle East, Turkey, India, Africa, Asia and the Americas.

We have delivered deals in the social, economic and energy sectors with a combined value of many billions of euros, advising on public private partnerships, energy and renewables projects, including the largest offshore wind farms in Europe, infrastructure and utilities investments and a range of other development and corporate finance transactions.
