Our lawyers advise on all legal aspects of the energy and infrastructure sector on a national and international scale. In Germany, lawyers in the DLA Piper Energy team have supported clients – in some cases ever since the energy markets were liberalized – with regard to regulatory issues, energy contracts and commercial law, and all questions surrounding renewable energies, during proceedings before competent regulators and other authorities, and in disputes before ordinary courts and in arbitration proceedings. In the area of infrastructure, we are involved not only in projects regarding generating and distributing energy, but also in projects in the following areas: airports, road construction, cargo and inland ports, waste facilities, water supply and wastewater disposal, public commuter and long-distance rail transport, and public institutions. Our advisory services extend to fee and remuneration structures, including state aid considerations. Due to our many years of cooperation with the public sector, we can often overcome significant hurdles for our clients.

In both fields, we work closely with our financing experts in integrated teams. We have extensive experience supporting both sponsors and financing banks with regard to financing energy and infrastructure projects in Germany as well as in other countries in Europe and elsewhere.

Our team advises project developers, investors and banks in planning, developing, financing and executing national and international projects, especially in the fields of energy and infrastructure. Our clients benefit from our sectoral approach and our many years of experience in advising a wide variety of market participants, including clients from the public sector.
