Renewable energy

Acting for clients including landowners, project developers, power companies, banks and financiers, our team has experience across the spectrum of renewable technologies.

With our origins in north east Scotland, Ledingham Chalmers offers an expert team rooted in the European exploration and production sector.

For over 30 years, we have advised operators, service providers, supply chain contractors, financiers or advisers engaged in the exploration and production of oil and gas resources.

Combined with our agricultural and property law expertise, we apply experience across the diverse range of technologies from marine fabrication to biomass processing, on and offshore wind, wave and tidal; biomass and carbon capture, transportation and storage.

We act for landowners, project developers, banks and financiers, fabricators, engineering contractors, consultants, public bodies and power generators.

Our expertise in renewable energy law has led to significant involvement in onshore renewable projects, particularly wind and hydropower, from a landowner’s position.  We have a growing offshore wind practice as supply chain and contracting opportunities increase in this sector.

Trust our team, led by partners Peter Murray, Rod Hutchison, Neil Anderson and Jody Mitchell to deliver services including the creation of joint ventures, commodity sale agreements, project development agreements and Crown Estate leases.

Specialist expertise also includes property, planning and environmental issues, wayleaves and servitudes, construction issues, employment advice and dispute resolution.

We can draw on our firm’s network of legal and sector specialists to meet your objectives.

A broad team supports our energy clients who benefit from corporate, litigation, construction, agriculture and commercial property expertise.
