          Energy

          The energy sector continues to change rapidly and is subject to an unprecedented range of challenges, making specialist legal advice essential.

          Advances in technology continue to drive the renewables sector, nuclear is facing wide-scale new build and decommissioning challenges, while legislation and funding present a diverse range of problems and opportunities. To add to that, concerns over energy supply policy and uncertain environmental, social and political conditions particularly in sectors such as oil and gas, mean that the risk of accidents and pollution are significant.

          Our international energy law team contains experts across all areas of energy, from renewables and nuclear to utilities, oil and gas and conventional power generation. From the conversion waste to energy, to the implementation of blockchain projects in the energy sector, DWF has the sector specialists to advice you on the new and emerging challenges of energy regulation law that your business faces.
