Energy & Infrastructure

We offer an end-to-end service that caters to the specific needs of individual clients or a consortium of partners involved in significant brown and green field projects. Such ventures may fall within the areas of energy, transportation, telecommunication, industrial production sites, data centers or complex real estate developments.

We provide customized expert advisory services to industrial companies, investors, government agencies, municipal bodies, sponsors, operators and financiers developing projects across all segments of energy and infrastructure.

Strategic support from an early stage from engaged and result oriented legal advisors is often a key success factor in major projects. We have extensive experience and the sophisticated business perspective necessary to offer you first-rate advice, and we are ready to address ad hoc issues and potential amendments to agreements or even disputes.

Excellent firm, providing high level advice.
