In our latest welcome post we are pleased to introduce further expertise in energy and infrastructure law and regulation. eSE’s Powering Middle East Summit, co-facilitated with the Arab Energy Renewable Commission and partnered with International Law firm Bird & Bird, is the strategic meeting point for renewable energy stakeholders to overcome legal uncertainties and issues restricting the development of new energy projects. Global legal practice Norton Rose Fulbright has worked with regional and multinational corporations, financial institutions and government entities in the Middle East for over 30 years and will be contributing two specialist speakers at the Summit. The firm has built a strong reputation upon industry focus and specialises across a series of sectors including energy, infrastructure and technology and innovation.
The team within Norton Rose Fulbright’s energy practice specialise in the facilitation of global solar projects, with expertise from specialties including project finance, capital markets, M&A, climate change and carbon financing. In the Middle East the team has taken a leading role advising developers and lenders on the first three rounds of the South African Renewable Energy IPP (REIPP) programme and are currently advising the Dubai government on their first Solar IPP.
Many of Norton Rose Fulbright’s energy lawyers have worked in major energy companies in leading energy-producing countries. This level of specialist industry knowledge will ensure that our ‘Renewable Regulation and Legislation’ and ‘Identifying Suitable Financing Models & Creating Partnerships’ panel sessions incorporate the experience of a range of global legal leaders.
