Power & Gas

Energy-related, commercial and cost effective advice is what our clients expect, and what we deliver.

Our client list includes leading international utilities, renewable energy developers, landowners, technology providers, construction companies, and debt and private equity funders.

Emissions legislation, working alongside tough renewables and carbon reduction targets, has shaped a radically different generation mix.

Recent fluctuations in oil and gas prices and the influence of shale gas developments in particular in the United States, continually remind us that those who ignore global trends and developments do so at their peril.

We understand all of these dynamics.

Our work reflects this diversity - from advising on the development, construction and operation of power plant projects, through to the operation of electricity interconnectors to continental Europe and the contractual and regulatory regime governing the importation of liquefied natural gas.
