Energy and infrastructure transactions and other projects are influenced by competition and regulation. This makes them complex and requires competence and sector-specific knowledge from the legal advisors. Many of the assignments have high stakes and impact society to a great degree, which requires premium legal advice.
The energy sector in Finland has been changing rapidly during the past years, with increased investments in renewable energy, including wind power in particular, and large transactions regarding energy transmission/distribution networks. This has attracted many foreign investors. In addition, the Finnish public sector’s readiness to implement infrastructure projects through public-private partnerships (PPPs) is increasing.
