Advising on all
aspects of a project

We act for the owner-managers of various project companies that have been established to provide 'turn-key' developments in the renewable energy sector. We have particular industry expertise in advising on the development of wind farm projects and combined heat and power biomass plants.

We bring to bear our skilled and multi-disciplined lawyers in areas of expertise such as corporate, commercial, banking and property to offer a comprehensive legal service.

We advise project companies and their  shareholders on all aspects of a project to bring it to the point of sale and this often involves advising on comprehensive sale agreements and financing arrangements. 

Our banking and finance expertise enables us to address in advance any issues that arise during the pre-development phase that will be relevant to any future provider of finance for the project.
Our advisory role in these multi-million pound projects often involves:

  • drafting and negotiating the terms of the sale agreements and associated documentation; 
  • providing project specific assistance on planning, property, commercial agreements, regulatory and other ad hoc project-related matters as required, including consents required for the project;
  • getting the project companies ready for sale, including undertaking a detailed and complex due diligence and disclosure exercise both of which we coordinate and manage, mindful of the requirements of any funder advancing funds for the purchase consideration and/or the project itself;
  • negotiating facility agreements and a comprehensive suite of security documentation where our client presents the project company ready for sale, inclusive of project funding; and
  • negotiating and drafting project agreements including the management services agreement, power purchase agreement and connection agreements.
