In the UK, energy is one of the fastest growing and indeed most exciting areas within the industrial sector.
Our solicitors have been dealing with the property aspects of gas, solar, wind farm, waste to energy and geothermal schemes for a number of years. We are experienced in acting for developers and land owners in both the commercial and rural sectors. Given the potential return for investors in renewable projects, we have also advised the banking and corporate finance sectors.
We have carried out full due diligence on sites and also drafted, negotiated and settled sale agreements, options, agreements for leases (conditional on planning, funding and grid connection), leases, cable easements and substation leases.
Within our energy team, we have very good relations with land agents, specialist energy advisors, finance providers and are able to provide clear, concise and cost effective reports on projects, regardless of their size and value. Our solicitors are able to identify and advise on the land registry title, summarising the key issues arising from due diligence enquiries, relevant searches and key legal documentation dealing with occupation and appropriate rights.
Given the firm’s commitment to reduce its carbon footprint and support causes that reduce greenhouses gases, we are pleased to be able to provide legal solutions to this very important sector.
