Providing legal advice to the energy sector requires an interdisciplinary approach, one that comprises not just energy law in the narrow sense but also environmental, planning and construction law, state aid and competition/antitrust law, public procurement, arbitration and litigation, and, in connection with transactions, corporate law.
We have an excellent reputation of successfully advising on all aspects of major cross-border acquisitions, joint ventures, asset exchanges, privatisations, trading and marketing, project finance, regulation and market reform. Schoenherr's energy practice also deals with climate protection & sustainability matters and has established a multi-disciplinary energy transition team which comprises lawyers from all practice areas with a detailed understanding of the energy sector and energy transition requirements.
Our energy transition team is a market leader in providing legal services and creative solutions for photovoltaic and wind power plants. In relation to renewable energy auctions, we provide legal advice and procedural support to bidders (investors) and contracting authorities (including auction design). Schoenherr further specialises in new energy technologies and innovative energy solutions (e.g. Power2X, green gas quotation regulations, green gas certificates, RED II energy communities, Green Financing, support mechanism for biomethane and hydrogen).
