Renewables & Energy

We advise developers and landowners on renewable energy schemes from the planning stage to construction and possible onward sale and have experience of dealing with wind power, hydro electric schemes, solar farms and anaerobic digestion plants.

We advise not only on the legal implications of entering into such schemes but, particularly for our farming clients, the way in which these schemes interact with other land management obligations, succession planning and appropriate business structures.

As business lawyers we understand that it will often be critical to a landowner to diversify the holding so that other, new, revenue streams can be created. Equally from a developers perspective we appreciate that you will wish to secure the land agreement as quickly as possible once broad agreement has been reached so that you can focus your efforts on acquiring a planning permission and grid connection licence.

We have a good understanding of the sector including emerging law and possible regulatory changes. As a firm we are committed to this area of practice and are recognised as being local experts in the renewables industry.

We recognise that prompt action and quick response times are important to our clients. All of our lawyers adopt a practical and commercial approach to new client projects and we make it our business to add real value to the proposition at affordable rates with prompt delivery. Our lawyers aim to be accessible to our clients and all maintain direct dial telephone numbers. You will be assigned a principal point of contact, usually a partner, whose role will be to manage the relationship.

Ultimately we aim to protect our clients from unnecessary risk and offer complex legal solutions and pragmatic commercial advice to resolve client issues posed to us.
