Energy & Climate Change

Wij zijn de gewaardeerde gesprekspartner voor toonaangevende energiebedrijven, toezichthouders, overheden, grote afnemers en investeerders. Ons energieteam kent uw sector: upstream en downstream olie en gas, elektriciteit, onshore en offshore windenergie, zonne-energie en andere (duurzame) energiebronnen als warmte en biomassa. Wij bouwen mee aan de juridische kaders voor de energiesector. Wij begrijpen de uitdagingen van de sector en het belang van innovatie en we lopen voorop bij het toepassen van nieuwe ontwikkelingen lokaal en internationaal. Wij zijn de juridische spil bij energieprojecten en –transacties. Zo staat bijvoorbeeld de eerste Nederlandse offshore windtender op ons conto en de acquisitie, ontwikkeling en projectfinanciering van het grootste zonnepark. Kortom onze ervaring, sectorkennis en creativiteit stellen u in staat om van uw initiatieven in deze sector een succes te maken.

The team is formed by specialists from different disciplines, with deep knowledge and experience of the industry.
