Our Energy practice is among the strongest in Greece, having advised on many of the largest and most high-profile energy transactions and projects in recent years. Drawing on the strength of our practices in Utilities, Project Finance, M&A and Banking & Finance, we advise domestic and international players in Greece’s vibrant energy market on issues ranging from concessions, licensing, and exploration rights to financing and regulatory compliance.
Our wide-ranging experience of supporting energy companies and their investors and lenders has given our team a deep understanding of the dynamics of this increasingly important sector. Greece’s climate makes it a natural home for renewable energy projects, so, as well as advising clients on oil and gas projects, we have been prominent in wind, photovoltaic and solar projects and also in waste-to-energy developments.
The Energy team handles a wide range of energy law issues, both administrative and commercial, focusing on energy project licensing, development and finance, and the wholesale and retail sale of electricity to the benefit of both local and international clients. This work includes advisory, drafting and negotiating and, when disputes arise, litigation and arbitration.
We advise on all stages of tendering, negotiating and finally closing oil and gas concession agreements with the Greek State, concessions, licenses, development and operation of oil and gas industries, both downstream and upstream, including advising on financing and mergers and acquisitions.
This expertise, combined with our knowledge of the regulatory frameworks governing the energy sector in Greece, has made us one of the go-to firms for leading energy groups in their inward investment in Greece.
Our areas of specialization include:
- regulatory and licensing
- project finance
- power purchase agreements
- power plant construction
- renewable energy sources
