Energy and Infrastructure

Eversheds Sutherland’s energy practice in Russia is a multi-disciplinary group of experienced lawyers whose expertise cuts across M&A, capital markets, PPP, real estate, construction, environment, litigation, project finance, and tax.

We advise governmental authorities, industry participants and financial institutions on a wide range of energy related assignments covering oil and gas, nuclear energy, electricity distribution as well as wind, hydro and other renewables.

We have an exceptional team of experts, which is why we are consulted when energy related operations are created green-field, financed or restructured, acquired or sold and/or under dispute.
