Energy and mining play a crucial role in the development of the economies of all countries from the Adriatic region. With a lack of state finance available to build new or rehabilitate existing infrastructure, energy generating capacities and mining capabilities, attracting investors’ attention is one of the most important issues on the agendas of regional governments.
Lex Adria energy & mining regional practice group has extensive experience in advising local and international companies, financial institutions, and technology providers in all areas of this constantly changing field of law. We advise our clients with due diligence investigations, mergers and acquisitions, project financing, licensing processes and regulatory compliance. We assist in every stage of the project development process, from the preparation of strategic advice, to the final closing of contracts, obtaining required permits and implementing transactions.
Considering the complex regulatory framework and sensitivity of these sectors and having in mind that some of the biggest deals in the region have come from this sector, our professionals are deeply involved in all areas of this industry. This includes regulatory and financial aspects, licensing; tenders; construction; operational matters for renewable energy projects (such as wind farms and stored energy), desalination projects, and natural gas resources.
