We know you face challenges: with generation, transmission, distribution, supply and purchase. But do your legal advisors have the sector insight and market familiarity to help you make the most of the opportunities (and manage the risks)? At Osborne Clarke we understand energy security issues and environmental concerns, and use our expertise and creative thinking to help you tackle the challenges.
We specialise in electricity. With specialists in procurement, operation and maintenance of energy infrastructure and in industry rules, licence and competition aspects, we’re well placed to advise the electricity industry as it develops. We're used to dealing with the regulators and have an experienced energy dispute resolution team. We understand the commercial aspects of energy and have advised many major organisations on financing, energy trading, acquisition and joint venture. Renewable energy is one of our particular specialisms, from the intricacies of private wire and ESCO arrangements on smaller scale renewables schemes through long term power and renewable benefits contracts to the largest renewable generation projects.
We work for major players in gas, too. Some of the largest matters we handle as a law firm are in the gas sector. From pipelines to retail business to UK and international energy disputes, we have the experience to tackle any regulatory or commercial issues.
We can draw on wider legal know-how. As a full-service firm, we can draw on real sector grounded expertise in other areas of law – like property and planning, health and safety, employment and tax.
