Energy & Utilities
We are regularly called upon to provide effective legal advice in energy and infrastructure projects. Our lawyers have experience in projects encompassing renewable energy, oil & gas, the electricity sector, energy trading, mining projects, the construction of power plants and road and transport infrastructure as well as public procurement and European Union projects.
The energy sector presents both significant challenges and major opportunities for businesses and investors. Volatile markets, new technologies, diverse sources of funding, a changing regulatory environment and the climate challenge; these are just some of the issues that our clients face in this fast moving sector.
Our sector focus and integrated regional approach allow us to offer a strong sector awareness and efficient solutions tailored to our energy and utilities clients in the region. Alongside energy companies, our clients include corporations, developers, financial institutions, utilities and regulatory bodies.
Our Energy Group combines experience from across the Banking, Corporate, Real Estate, Dispute Resolution, Competition/Regulatory and Procurement practices in the firm and we give guidance on corporate finance matters, including structured financing, debt restructuring and public and private placements of debt and equity and also on merger clearances and other aspects of competition law. Our dispute resolution team is involved in cases connected with the collection of debts, shareholder disputes, etc.

We help clients by providing legal advice on energy regulatory issues, drafting renewable energy regulations and related legal documents including power purchase and grid connection agreements. We also help clients in negotiations with Governments, public utility companies and other stakeholders in Slovenia, Serbia, Croatia and Macedonia.
