Why Slater and Gordon

We became involved with the renewable energy sector for over 15 years so we understand both the unique challenges and significant opportunities in this fast-moving area. There is increased demand for energy and security of supply, as well as complex regulation and pressure to reduce emissions. These are all challenges which require lawyers with specialist expertise who understand the key issues and ability to adapt quickly to change.

We advise both landowners and developers, we have experience dealing with multiple owners, and we have the systems needed to ensure projects are not delayed.

Our Expertise

Onshore and Offshore Wind Farms

We have assisted in a number of wind farm developments at sites across the UK. We act for both landowners and developers so we understand situations where there are competing interests. We focus on finding a fair balance to ensure that the transaction progresses and a successful outcome is achieved.

Solar Panels

We can negotiate agreements and set up a contract for delivery to the National Grid.

Onshore Gas Exploration

Onshore gas exploration continues to be a controversial subject. We have been involved in a number of onshore gas exploration projects involving both coal bed, methane and shale gas. Our experience means that we are well qualified to advise you on developing, financing and licensing onshore gas facilities as well as dealing with share transactions, joint ventures and decommissioning security.
