Our Energy Law practice has long-standing industry knowledge and experience with regulatory matters in the field of electricity and natural gas as well as all other legal issues relevant to energy companies.
Our clients include companies that are active in various functions on the electricity and natural gas markets in Austria or abroad: from energy generation and storage to trading, transport, distribution and the supply of energy products.
We advise companies on compliance with the various regulatory requirements of energy law as well as on civil and contract law matters. In the event of disputes, we represent our clients in the relevant proceedings – in particular before the regulatory authority E-Control and the administrative courts, including the Supreme Administrative Court and the Constitutional Court.
At the interface with antitrust law, we bring our market knowledge and expertise to bear on issues relevant to competition, such as long-term contracts, cooperations or state aid issues.
Our law firm has successfully advised on numerous energy projects, in particular on (cross-border) M&A transactions and joint ventures in the energy sector – from structuring and due diligence, to drafting and negotiating contracts, to obtaining merger control clearance(s) and meeting other regulatory requirements.
