HPP’s Energy team is widely-acknowledged as one of the leading teams advising clients in the energy sector on their Finnish legal issues. Our lawyers advise on assignments at the cutting edge of the fast-changing Finnish energy market, advising both domestic players and international clients on the legal aspects of planning and executing Finnish energy projects and investments in the current regulatory climate across the whole spectrum of generation, from wind to biomass to nuclear as well as advising on issues arising from the distribution, sale and trading of power in the Nordic region, including corporate Power Purchase Agreements. Our clients include major utilities, specialist fund investors, project developers and operators and financial institutions.
Our teams are often multi-disciplinary which, as well as energy experts, include experts from the corporate, banking & finance, environmental and land use, construction, commercial, technology and disputes teams, all with an excellent understanding of the legal and practical issues involved in operating or investing in the Finnish energy sector. Our project team advises on the whole lifecycle of energy projects, from planning and permitting, to raising project finance (both debt and equity), to the construction, commissioning and operational phases of large-scale energy projects. Our transaction team helps investors and sponsors both acquire and dispose of energy assets and portfolios and, of particular note, has one of the market-leading teams advising on the renewable energy sector.
In addition to HPP’s project and transactional expertise, our disputes team handles a wide range of disputes work related to the Energy sector.
