Infrastructure & Energy

We have experience in all segments of the infrastructure and energy industries, including electricity, solar, wind, biomass, oil and gas, telecommunications, transport, water and waste, and renewable energy.

We advise clients on every aspect of infrastructure and PPP projects, from the preliminary structuring of projects in compliance with applicable legislation and market practice, to its implementation, including drawing up the required formal communication with authorities and technical experts. Our services include preparing procurement strategies and contracts, for example for the operators of distribution networks and transmission grids, and also for clients who trade in electricity, based on EFET. We also offer tax and financial structuring advice, help with regulation and licensing procedures for investment projects, and assist with various operational issues, suggesting innovative solutions where appropriate.
