Power infrastructure management / Procurement Transactions

Optimise the management and competitiveness of your energy assets

Our teams support manufacturers in this sector, both as consultancy and in litigation, in developing their power production, and provide advice on managing production and optimising consumption. We have developed special expertise in the settlement of disputes before the National Regulatory Commission of Energy (CRE).

With the largest team on this market, our firm can support you with projects of all sizes, from large offshore wind farms to combined cycle gas plants, both in France and abroad.

Land acquisition/public land deeds

As an active player in the renewable energy sector, we work regularly with producers and project sponsors, managing the various elements of land acquisition and lease negotiations, both during the project development phase (memoranda of agreement) and operations (long-term leases, construction leases, easements, volume divisions).

Obligation to purchase/ public contract transactions

Our teams help you optimise the management of your power infrastructure, manage and develop your output (reduction, internal consumption), and sell your power output on the spot market or to aggregators, manufacturers or business centres. We also regularly intervene in the drafting and negotiation of mandates and contracts for purchasers under obligation to purchase or on public contracts.

Energy efficiency

We have a proven track record in controlling energy demand: we advise industrial groups on energy saving certificates, energy performance, and heating and cooling systems. The firm is also active in the development and management of electric vehicle fleets

Regulations, liability

We advise and defend energy companies in operating their plants, and renovating and renewing their production facilities. We have developed specific expertise in the repowering and decommissioning of power production facilities (additional orders, financial guarantees, etc.). We also work with operators during liability hearings before the courts.

Acknowledged as among the best industrial risk and product liability specialists, our team supports major French and international groups operating in the power generation sector in the areas of environmental impact and neighbourhood disturbances related to energy projects, both in pre-litigation and litigation
