Energy is life

Since 2008 we have accumulated valuable expertise in development and implementation processes, financing solutions, regulatory and compliance affairs, and drafting and negotiating of specific agreements in the energy industry. Our professionals are ready to advise clients on a broad range of issues, such as energy regulations, project planning, legal due diligence, development, construction and operation of power plants and grids.

We have been for years, and will continue to be, heavily involved in legal and business consultancy for building and managing renewable energy power plants that work on wind, solar, biomass, biogas and geothermal resources. We make available our legal coordination and services to those that activate in the fields of smart grids, smart metering, energy efficiency, smart factory, smart cities and communications.

We have acquired extensive legal and business competencies in attracting business partners, obtaining permits and licenses, and providing legal and business assistance for development and production from onshore and offshore oil and gas fields. We also supply legal and management solutions to investors, owners or operators that make money off district heating technologies, such as gas, biogas and biomass-based steam turbines.

The integrated legal and business solutions we provide for our clients increase the resilience of their operations, condition in which their business thrives, and prove to be very useful when it comes to new investments and development projects. We do legal assistance in negotiations and conclusions of deals and commercial agreements, and offer consultancy and representation for energy suppliers and distributors in relationship with the regulatory authorities.
