ENERGY & UTILITIES

The European energy market is faced with challenges. Changes in prices and regulations present both significant opportunities and considerable risks.

FORT has dedicated legal professionals with know-how in energy law (electricity, gas, biomass, and other renewables) for the Baltics. We guide clients through the intricacies of this rapidly changing environment. FORT helps stay compliant, and obtains licenses and permits, amongst many other services.

Emerging Challenges and Opportunities in the Energy & Utilities Sector

As the European energy market continues to transform, businesses must stay ahead of the curve to capitalise on new opportunities and mitigate potential risks. Key challenges and opportunities include:

  • Regulatory Compliance. Navigating the complex web of EU as well as Baltic states' energy and environmental regulations is crucial for businesses operating in this sector. Our legal professionals help clients obtain licenses, communicate with supervisory authorities, and manage court proceedings;
  • Infrastructure Development. With the demand for sustainable energy sources growing, businesses must adapt their infrastructure to accommodate new technologies and evolving market demands. FORT's legal team can provide guidance;
  • Renewable Energy. The shift towards renewable energy presents both opportunities and challenges for businesses in the energy and utilities sector. Our experts can help clients navigate the legal complexities associated with this;
  • Mergers and Acquisitions. Mergers and acquisitions are becoming increasingly common in the energy market. FORT's legal professionals can provide comprehensive support throughout the M&A process, ensuring a smooth and successful transaction.
