Solar

Bracewell has been a leading solar energy law firm since its inception. Our clients include some of the world’s leading solar companies and investors. They turn to us because of the understanding of the legal and commercial issues that comes from our deep knowledge of the industry and our experience working on high-profile solar transactions.

Our solar energy lawyers have advised on virtually every significant regional solar project in the Middle East, and we are the only firm to be twice named “Infrastructure and Energy Projects Team of the Year” at the Middle East Awards (2017, 2018). We have also been recognized two years in a row by The Times as one of the top 20 firms in the UK for energy and renewables (2019, 2020).

We are highly regarded for our role in complex commodity transactions, such as solar hedges and contracts for difference, which enable the financing of new generation agreements between independent power producers and utilities.
