Energy Lawyers

A key driver of the global economy, the energy and climate change sector is affected by geopolitical, economic and regulatory pressures. You require advisors who understand your industry and work with leaders of energy companies, regulators, governments, industry bodies and investors on the cutting edge of commercial, regulatory and risk issues in the sector. Based across 15 jurisdictions in Central and Eastern Europe, we have been active in CEE since the beginning of the privatisation and liberalisation of the energy sector across the region.

We have helped to shape the sector by advising on the most high-profile and ground-breaking projects and transactions over many years. In Romania, CMS most recently helped re-shape the oil & gas specific tax law, successfully advocating for a reform in the way the oil & gas industry is recognised for tax purposes in Romania.

Our dedicated energy and climate change lawyers in Romania work in every part of the sector, covering the whole chain of the energy cycle, including upstream, midstream and downstream regulatory matters in the oil&gas sector and from greenfield projects to distribution, trading and supply in the electricity sector, as well as nuclear and renewables. Whether you are a NOC, IOC, independent, electricity company, investor, government or financial institution, we have the energy specialists to meet all your strategic challenges globally.

Our multi-disciplinary teams were among the first to advise on ground-breaking global oil & gas M&A and on power projects in Europe, to establish a single electricity market in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, lead historic electricity industry reform in Mexico, and work on renewable energy projects globally. We cover the full range of practice areas that you may require as an energy businesses - from regulatory and transactional support, to procurement, tax, environmental, disputes, employment, technology and competition assistant.
