Their experience in energy and non-energy projects includes acting as counsel to developers or individual sponsors, to general or specialist contractors, or to the lenders to the project. Their exposure to energy work dates back to the opening of electricity generation to the private sector in the early 1990s and has continued through to the restructuring of the electric power industry. They have experience in work involving plants of various technologies, and covering new or operating facilities.
