Energy, Infrastructure & Environment

De Brauw is the only law firm in the Netherlands that has an energy practice that integrates our in-house expertise in transactions, regulation, litigation and criminal enforcement. Our Energy Industry Group is supported by over 55 lawyers from our Corporate, M&A, Finance, Regulation, Environment, Litigation, Arbitration, Criminal Enforcement and Infrastructure groups, as well as by our offices in Brussels, London, Frankfurt, Singapore and Shanghai. This, combined with being part of a global network of law firms referred to as the “Best Friends”, ensures ample experience in and capacity for complex transactions, advice on national and cross-border matters and litigation. We work in small multi-expertise teams, staffed as required by the matter and as cost-effective as possible. This approach ensures that clients benefit directly from our expertise.

De Brauw is actively involved in almost every key project, vital litigation and regulatory matter and in the significant transactions in the energy sector. The wide range of matters include the whole spectrum of the energy mix: from electricity, oil & gas (including LNG) and nuclear to renewables renewable energy such as wind (onshore and offshore) and, solar, bio masshydrogen and heat. This leads to an in-depth and systemic market and sector knowledge of the complex energy system.


We are involved in many matters relating to global energy transition, restructuring of the energy market and are representing clients in renewable energies, carbon storage and in climate change litigation. We can do so because over the past couple of decades we have been actively involved in all major developments within the energy sector.


We believe in sharing our knowledge, best practices, and tools and applications with our clients. Please see our pages on Knowledge Sharing.
