Electricity and Renewable Energy
Hydroelectric power is the dominant renewable energy source in Norway and we have a strong position in the market. However, our clients and appointments are in all fields of renewable energy and cleantech, including wind power, solar and geothermal energy. Our lawyers regularly act for major Norwegian and foreign players in these industries, in regulatory matters, contract drafting and negotiations, corporate advisory work, M&A, dispute resolution and operational matters.
Our team has also assisted in most of the major restructurings within the Norwegian electricity sector during the last 25 years.
Our international experience includes complex energy development projects abroad; we have helped clients establish business operations on all continents. This may involve protecting our clients’ interests by managing risk in new markets, also in countries where legal and social structures are less developed. We advise on corporate structure, financing, contracts, licenses and negotiations with relevant authorities/government agencies.
