Nuclear energy lawyers

We understand that your sector is changing rapidly. With increasing demand for carbon-free electricity, existing nuclear capacity and new reactor designs will be vital in achieving global climate objectives.

Whichever part of the nuclear lifecycle you’re on, our lawyers have the dedicated experience with the cutting-edge technologies - and the commercial and regulatory challenges surrounding them - to help you achieve your full potential.

The experience we can bring to your team is considerable. We have led some of the most significant acquisitions of global nuclear businesses, helping to structure and close multinational transactions that changed the face of the industry. Our lawyers also have specific experience with the critical tax issues that are central to decommissioning the US reactor fleet.

We have extensive experience helping to shape policy around the world. In the US, for instance, our lawyers help craft nuclear energy policy before the Department of Energy, the Department of Commerce, the Executive Branch and Congress. We can also help you to manage the planning, technical and public relations issues that often arise when developing new nuclear facilities.

The energy transition is underway, and our nuclear lawyers are at the heart of the structural shift from fossil-based to carbon-free energy that will shape the first half of the 21st century. We look forward to helping your business on this journey.
