Energy and Renewables

We recognise the rapid growth of renewable energy markets as the UK is set to achieve carbon neutral target and in nearly a decade we have developed vast experience in solar PV developments.

Our Corporate Team, led by managing director Gordon McElroy who is dual-qualified solicitor in Northern Ireland and England and Wales, have assisted independent international renewable companies, founders and management teams as well as their respective financial advisors in securing finance for developments of all sizes of solar PV farms across the UK and Northern Ireland.

With in-depth knowledge and experiences in project finance combined with high degrees of commercial acumen, our team guides renewable energy developers from securing legal rights over sites for the development of solar PV farms to the issue of term sheets, review of planning and regulatory requirements through to the negotiation of all project finance documents including, loan note, guarantee, security agreements with various key stakeholders, including, traditional private equity investors and funds manager.

We offer an all-round approach to the needs of our clients from the commencement of the project through to the acquisition of sites, financing, planning, grid connection and exit. Our multidisciplinary teams will work with the clients to understand their businesses, management strategies and most importantly their challenges and will work collaboratively to provide pragmatic advice and solutions to achieve the best possible outcome and mitigate risk and liability.
