Loyens & Loeff

Energy

The global energy sector as a whole progresses at a tremendous pace as it transitions from conventional to renewable energy sources. Although conventional energy sources continue to be of pivotal importance, their role as part of the energy mix is now much more complex. These developments provide new opportunities to market players which must be equipped to withstand the increasingly challenging environment under the constant scrutiny from regulators, lawmakers, tax authorities, shareholders and other stakeholders.

The Loyens & Loeff Energy Team is at the core of these developments. Our integrated team of tax and legal energy experts can support you in making sound business decisions. Furthermore, we can assist and represent you in dispute resolution and litigation, both in civil law and administrative cases if such cases arise.

A few examples of areas where we combine our in-depth legal and fiscal expertise with the capacity and skillset of our full-service transactional practice:

  • In energy M&A transactions we are able to provide our clients (buyers, sellers, investment banks, private equity) with integrated advice: corporate, tax, regulatory, civil notary, employment, zoning and permitting, and competition.
  • Our clients recognise and value our industry awareness in dispute resolution matters. We have been involved in cases that have shaped the tax and regulatory environment. This enables us to represent your case in dispute resolution matters with the highest level of expertise and experience.
  • Specific tax considerations apply to the industry. We can assist your tax department in tax efficient (re)structuring of energy investments, assessing the tax line in project calculations, or in finding solutions in complex discussions with tax authorities.
  • In energy projects, our clients (sponsors and lenders) can rely on our capability to translate project documentation and regulatory aspects into bankable standards. We have acted on numerous renewable energy projects, including offshore and onshore wind farms, biomass plants, combined heat and power plants and solar power projects.
