The generation, supply and consumption of energy is a key issue and challenge of the world. Climate change, new technologies and a growing population all contribute to the complexity of the Energy and Utilities sectors. It is no different in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region – a primary source of the globe’s fossil fuels that has also historically relied on traditional energy means. In a changing world, the MENA region is changing rapidly too – leading the way on solar development, energy transition and installation. Our international and local clients rely on us having a deep understanding of the changes (structural and legal) to aid them in getting the deal through.
Through our experience in acting on many of the largest and complicated energy and utilities transactions and pan-regional expertise, we are able to advise on the full life of a project; from inception, financial close, construction and operation. We have advised developers, sponsors, contractors, financiers and governments and lead the implementation of novel legal solutions that have become the market norm.
