We consult various players in the energy industry in all areas of energy (commercial) law: in the purchase and sale of infrastructure, in the development of new energy projects and in all – including regulatory – issues relating to energy generation, supply and trading.

For many years, we have been Austrian legal advisors to the European Federation of Energy Traders (EFET) and also advise foreign providers on their market entry in Austria. We represent our clients before national and EU authorities and also in dispute and arbitration proceedings. Our knowledge of the industry often provides the decisive advantage.
