Qualified legal support for energy projects requires expertise in many areas of law such as energy law, public law, building law, corporate and finance law, waterway and land transport law – and all of these areas both at the national and the international level. Our main competence area is renewable energy. We have the knowledge and experience that is needed for projects in on-shore and off-shore wind energy, solar energy, biomass, energy storage, sector coupling and the development of district solutions.
We advise project developers, energy suppliers, energy traders, energy service providers, component manufacturers and contractors. We also provide advice to lenders, investment companies, industry associations and the public sector. In this way we can support the whole life cycle of an energy project.
We can call on a global law firm network with a similar profile, which means that we can also support you in international energy topics.
The ENERGY competence area is part of the commercial law firm ARNECKE SIBETH DABELSTEIN.
We have worked in the area of renewable energy since the early 2000s and we have experienced many developments, and even helped to develop the legislative framework. This allows us to support your projects from a perspective which goes far beyond mere legal expertise.
In this section you can find a selection of our reference projects. Do you want to know more? Feel free to contact us. We will then send you further information about our consulting services, and of course a detailed track record.
