Gleiss Lutz’s energy practice is recognized as a market leader. We know the industry and the relevant legal issues. We provide legal advice along the entire energy value chain. Our services range across all key issues in the energy sector such as power generation, renewable energies, grid operation and expansion as well as energy supply and trading.
We advise on all aspects of German and European regulatory law – from issues of unbundling and third-party access, to tariffs and congestion management mechanisms. When advising on M&A projects in the energy sector, our in-depth knowledge of the regulatory framework and the market standards in project contracts enables us to render focussed legal and commercial transaction advice aimed at smoothly implementing the transaction by minimising the client’s transaction risks. We have a special track record on renewable energy projects, in particular onshore and offshore wind, solar, biomass and geothermal projects, but also on conventional power plant projects (nuclear, coal, gas), electricity grids and gas storage.
Our clients include German and foreign energy suppliers, grid operators, major municipal utilities, international financial and strategic investors in infrastructure and energy assets, electricity intensive industries as well as public bodies.
