Energy

Our team has extensive experience in the energy industry having acted as counsel and arbitrators in numerous arbitrations involving renewable and non-renewable energy sources.  Our experience spans multiple areas, such as power-purchase agreements (PPA), energy licenses and concessions, joint ventures, and the procurement, regulation, and privatization of energy projects.  

 

We have successfully represented private and public parties in complex cases involving, among others, carbon capture and utilization, thermal power, fossil fuels, energy networks and power distribution.  Not only we have expertise in conventional power sources and businesses, but we have been part of leading cases concerning energy transition, such as disputes on the development and operation of wind farms, solar energy and hydropower plants, which enables us to offer unique top-tier legal advice on these issues.
