Energy & Utilities

The energy and utilities sector has seen a rapid rise in its public profile in recent years

The energy sector has undergone a significant shift in recent years and is commanding increased global attention. Reduction of carbon, renewable energy sources, security of supply, ESG and energy nationalism are at the front of minds of both the public and investment communities and net zero targets become commonplace.

This dynamic, evolving sector is under increasing scrutiny and intense competitive pressure as the energy transition gathers momentum. Many jurisdictions have adopted a more open and liberalised regulatory model. As a result, companies are seeking ever more innovative and practical advice from their lawyers.
