Energy and Natural Resources, Belgium

The business world cannot afford to ignore issues related to energy. Nor can governments overly delay energy investments without compromising the continent’s, nation’s or region’s competitive position. It is important to deal with these issues in a pro-active way and with a long-term vision in mind. The rising cost of energy has a huge impact on daily business. Finding the right solution for the supply and trading of energy becomes more and more important. Our lawyers have extensive experience in dealing with these issues.

Whether you are a local or international company dealing with a complex issue related to energy use or management, or an energy supplier coping with a problem in relation to (traditional or renewable) energy production, transmission or distribution, we will find the right way to manage it.

We also advise on mining projects and transactions and related regulatory matters.
