Energy industry

Projects in the energy industry, and the issues arising in that connection, are often complex. For this reason, the competency teams at BMT apply an integrated approach when implementing their many years of experience in the realm of energy law. BMT’s lawyers tailor their approach to the needs of the specific project, integrating expertise from the field of public law (particularly in administrative, public procurement, anti-trust and company law, as well as construction law) with their many years of experience in energy law. Issues of tax and finance may also be covered, where necessary.

BMT advises sovereign entities, including municipalities and public-sector companies, as well as private entities or mixed-type power generation, utility and grid companies, particularly in the sectors of electrical power, natural gas, water, wastewater, heat, and wind power. Our lawyers’ many years of experience in supporting and advising clients in connection with the decision-making processes of public authorities are an invaluable asset. This solid basis enables our lawyers to advise clients knowledgeably and prudently, in a way that takes account of clients’ political and commercial objectives.

The spectrum of services offered by Büsing Müffelmann & Theye includes, inter alia, planning, public procurement, plant and infrastructural construction projects, permitting and land use planning procedures, site development agreements, questions of access and anti-trust law issues, and unfair pricing and price control matters. Special mention should be made of the firm’s broad practical experience in easement agreements and concessions in connection with procurement projects in the fields of electrical power, natural gas, water, and district heat. BMT has a proven track record in advising energy sector clients both at the drafting and at the closing stage on power supply or utility and waste disposal agreements.
