Energy

Energy 1

We have first hand knowledge and experience of all aspects of energy production and supply. We advise some of the biggest names in the business in relation to the development and construction, maintenance and operation of energy assets including renewable technologies. We have specific experience of advising on:

  • hydro generation schemes;
  • biomass boiler systems;
  • combined heat and power systems;
  • district heating schemes; and
  • energy from waste;
We offer a service which allows clients to engage using industry language rather than “dumbing down” their requirements.


Sector specialist within our team

Amongst our specialist advisers is solicitor Kelvin Parry who spent 24 years in the energy sector, serving an indentured electrical apprenticeship with ICI and working for subsidiaries of British Gas and Eastern Electricity specialising in embedded generation, prior to qualifying as a solicitor.

Why we are different

Naturally, every law firm which claims to have energy sector experience says that they are different, but we really do have the tee-shirt (or perhaps more appropriately the “hi-vis vest”!). We have practical experience of everything from jointing HV cables to installing steam boiler systems. Our difference is, we know it because we’ve done it, just like you.
 

When things go wrong

We also advise clients with energy related disputes. Our advisers have dealt with disputes relating to a wide range of issues from exploding turbines, take or pay gas contracts, overbilling in energy contracts, to development disputes for disused undersea gas fields being converted to gas storage facilities. Clients rely upon our industry knowledge to gain a strategic advantage in energy dispute resolution. Whether it is a simple billing dispute with a utility supplier or a major dispute with a contractor or development partner, we can help.
 
Our clients include Energy Supply Companies, Energy Traders, Equipment Manufacturers, Developers, Maintenance Contractors, NHS Trusts and Energy Consumers. We are always happy to have a no-obligation discussion of your requirements.
