At Foyen, we have extensive experience of the energy sector and over the years, we have worked in all the main areas, hydropower, nuclear power, wind power, gas and biogas, and CHP – with various fuel sources. Many of our lawyers have also worked in-house in the energy sector in the past. This gives us a virtually unparalleled breadth, which also means that we undertake the vast majority of assignments with great insight. And it’s this insight, combined with our experience in this field and legal expertise, which forms the basis for our commercial recommendations. That is what we think, anyway. What do you think?
So, what sort of recommendation are you after? Do you need a one-off effort in a targeted area, or perhaps a more strategic role over an extended period for a larger project? Today, we operate in both these capacities for several clients with, amongst other things, land and detailed planning, supply contracts, expropriation cases and request and regulatory issues. A large number of assignments centre on the difficult balance between nature, culture and energy needs. We’re convinced that we can help you in any case. Get in touch with us and you will see for yourself.
Foyen supported a major energy company with permit questions related to environmental regulations, as well as land access rights, planning permission and detailed planning. In addition, we offered advice on construction law in relation to supplier agreements. With a large number of stakeholders, the company’s larger projects presented considerable challenges. Both production and distribution have presented issues with which we have helped; for example: guaranteeing habitat protection under environmental legislation, chemicals – REACH* – new detailed planning and planning permission according to PBL. We also regularly ensure that responsibilities for working conditions are correct in different contracts.

It is about being able to support all aspects of the business, from environmental and expropriation issues to questions related to land and real estate. That is why we have put together a specific industry team, with legal experts who together can offer a virtually unrivalled combination of experience and legal expertise in the energy sector.
