As the world moves away from fossil fuels to cleaner, renewable energies, the UK is uniquely positioned to benefit from the transition. With some of the best wave and tidal energy resources in the world, state of the art testing facilities and technical experience, the UK offers major commercial opportunities in a range of marine energy projects.
With that potential on our doorstep, it’s crucial to call upon the legal expertise of a firm immersed in the sector and used to handling a range of cases for local authorities, wave and tidal energy companies, contractors, developers, funders and investment managers.
