Clean Energy & Renewables

When it comes to renewable energy, our law firm is leading the way

From cleantech build-outs, solar megaprojects and on and offshore wind farm projects, the global renewables sector is filled with opportunity. For those investing, it’s a space primed for growth, with success depending on the ability to manage rapidly advancing technologies, increasing regulatory demands, feed in tariffs and offtake risk. In this market where innovation is key, we support financiers, developers and retailers to get creative.

Mitigating, adapting and innovating - the market is seeing significant investments in research, clean energy, green buildings and in regulatory reform.

As the Asia Pacific surpasses the Americas for clean energy investment, we can support you on every aspect of your clean energy or renewables project including:

  • Project development
  • Project finance solutions
  • Acquiring and divesting energy assets
  • Negotiating project agreements.
