WeirFoulds LLP's Energy Group is comprised of lawyers with extensive experience in the energy sector. The Group's lawyers provide transactional, litigation and regulatory advice to both public and private sector clients in that sector.  

The members of the Group have worked on a variety of renewable energy projects, including solar, wind, biofuel and hydroelectric. They have advised public and private companies that are active in oil and gas exploration in North America and Africa.
 
Arrangements in the energy sector require a sophisticated grasp of a variety of possible financing and construction methods. The members of the Group have assisted clients in structuring design/build agreements, engineering/procurement/ construction agreements, and operations and management agreements.  

Municipally-owned electricity distribution utilities face a particularly daunting range of challenges. The Group has extensive experience in the regulation of the transmission and distribution of electricity. The members of the Group have advised utilities and municipalities on the governance issues for municipally-owned utilities. In addition, the Group's experience in mergers and acquisitions, and in the structuring of public/private agreements, is particularly valuable to municipal owners and their utilities.
