About

Provided by CMS

A key driver of the global economy, the energy sector is affected by geopolitical, economic and regulatory pressures. You require advisers who understand your industry and work with leaders of energy companies, regulators, governments, industry bodies and investors on the cutting edge of commercial, regulatory and risk issues in the sector. Based across 15 jurisdictions in Central and Eastern Europe, we have been active in CEE since the beginning of the privatisation and liberalisation of the energy sector across the region. We have helped to shape the sector by advising on the most high-profile and ground-breaking projects and transactions over many years.

Our Ukraine Energy Projects and Construction practice group is consistently recognised as being the leading energy practice in Ukraine by both international and local rating agencies (Chambers Europe, 2012-2018, Legal 500, 2015-2018,  Ukrainian Law Firms, 2009-2019, Who's Who Legal and other).

We advise clients from across of the energy industry (upstream and downstream oil & gas, electricity, nuclear and renewables) on how to structure projects, offering not only legal expertise but also wide-ranging knowledge of the industry and its technical and physical characteristics. Our specialists also cover associated legal fields, including real estate law, construction law, infrastructure regulation, environmental law and corporate law.
