Energy and Water

The energy sector is developing at a rapid pace. Sustainability, the production of (shale) gas and decentralised power generation are, for example, important topics and companies in the sector face major challenges. How green is green and how are traditional business models evolving?

You operate at the cutting edge of serving business interests and public responsibility. We have worked with suppliers of energy and water for years.

On the supply side, we have experience with regulation, pricing and consumer protection. On the production side, we are familiar with techniques used for developing new forms of energy and problems that can arise in connection with the construction and management of networks and systems.

We assist national and regional suppliers with widely ranging legal procedures varying from the delivery of energy and shutting off power to pipe laying, damage to systems and the environment.

With respect to your operational management, we have in-depth experience with the collective bargaining agreements for water companies, energy network companies (NWb) and power generation and distribution companies (Plb). We provide fast and effective advice and assistance in disputes about terms of employment, collective bargaining agreements and social plans.

Banking & Finance

We oversee financing pathways for borrowers and financiers. In this respect, we take charge of producing the documents, negotiate the terms on your behalf and draft the required financing agreements and draft the securities documents. In addition, we supervise restructuring plans and can advise you about collateral. Together with you, we determine a strategy for seizure and foreclosure that takes all the commercial and legal risks into account. If negotiations unexpectedly break down or different interests are at odds, we will litigate on your behalf as a borrower, financier or receiver.

The Banking & Finance team is part of the Finance, Securities & Insolvency division. A number of lawyers in the team are regularly appointed as receiver or administrator in bankruptcy or moratorium proceedings, respectively. This means, we can provide you with optimal support if you become involved in, for example, a pre-pack, restart or asset deal.
