Provided by CMS

With 400+ lawyers working across 75 offices, CMS Energy & Projects practices are one of the biggest in the world. For over 30 years, both groups have successfully developed their capabilities, gaining valuable experience in numerous complex transactions and projects in the sector. CMS offers a unique platform unmatched by any other international law firm on the continent. In each jurisdiction across Europe, we offer a specialised team of energy and infrastructure lawyers.

Our energy experience spans: renewables, power and oil & gas. Our projects experience spans: airports, seaports, motorways, railways, public transport, chemical, waste management, healthcare, digital infrastructure, district heating, education, urban regeneration, water and sewage as well as e-mobility.

We are able to provide sector-specific legal advice throughout the project life cycle, from the financing of a project to its execution and operation and subsequent sale. We advise utilities, sponsors, lenders, public sector organisations, contractors and service providers in a wide variety of energy and infrastructure (including public-private partnerships (PPP)) projects.

Given the long-term nature of the projects we advise on, it is not uncommon for disputes to arise at some point during a project’s lifespan. CMS’s comprehensive offering allows for streamlined and effective collaboration with our contentious colleagues to steer our clients through the more challenging phases of their projects.
