Renewables

Ukraine

Our comprehensive expertise in the area of renewable energies is founded on decades of experience, which we have gained through our active involvement in all sectors of the energy industry. What makes our energy experts stand out is their combination of deep specialist expertise in energy law with broad knowledge of the energy industry as a whole.

The majority of the renewable energy projects which we have successfully supported in recent years have been implemented in Central and South-Eastern Europe, whereby, thanks to our many years of experience, we are regularly called on to advise on innovative new projects. We collaborate with energy producers, plant operators, distribution network operators, financing institutions, investment funds as well as traders and investment banks - which results on the one hand in our expertise on a wide variety of legal issues, and on the other in our ability to provide practical advice.

We advise on plant construction or purchase, on technical approvals and environmental questions, on network operation issues or on strategic considerations relating to project implementation and we also represent our clients before the courts or arbitration tribunals.
