Power and utilities
The power and utilities
sector is in a period of transformation and uncertainty. Changes in regulation,
fuel source prices and technology are just some of the issues today’s market
participants have to contend with, not to mention ageing assets, security of
supply and environmental considerations.
In recent years we’ve
helped leading utility companies, governments, developers and international
financial institutions to address these issues.
We’ve advised on many
of the most innovative power and utilities transactions, both in developed
countries and in some of the most challenging jurisdictions in the world. The
varied nature of our work includes consortia bids for regulated assets, the
separation of generation and transmission businesses, and the creation of
efficient new financing structures for developers and incumbents, to name but a
Regulation has always
been a dominant feature of the sector. Whether it’s the increasingly complex
filings required for new projects, or the emerging rules around vertical
integration, our pre-eminent regulatory group helps clients navigate changing
regulatory landscapes successfully.
Our leading power and utilities team advises on all
aspects of the sector, including the regulatory regime, M&A/strategic
alliances, financing, dispute resolution and environmental law.
