Energy and Infrastructure
We advise on the specific requirements of the energy industry, including renewables and nuclear power, and in infrastructure-related matters. Our work includes counsel relating to the development and permitting of energy and infrastructure projects. Krogerus lawyers advise on electricity regulation, grid connections, agreements between electricity companies and producers, expropriation matters for infrastructure projects, and permitting of waste disposal areas. We are regularly involved in domestic and international mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, public-private partnerships and financing of energy and infrastructure projects. Additionally, our work encompasses a full range of industry-specific matters, such as competition law and regulatory issues, feed-in tariff and state aid matters, administrative and other procedural requirements, as well as commercial agreements.
