DLA Piper is a global law firm with lawyers located in more than 40 countries throughout the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific, positioning us to help clients with their legal needs around the world.
Awarded “International Law Firm of the Year” for the past two consecutive years (2017 & 2018 Middle East Legal Awards), our presence in the MENA region is unrivalled. We are at the forefront of the renewable energy market, advising sponsors, developers, financiers and regulatory bodies, amongst others, on the full spectrum of solar power and solar technology projects.
Our team have advised on many of the region’s landmark projects, many of which are “firsts of their kind”. We were involved in the first solar projects in the UAE (the SHAMS 1 project); Saudi Arabia (the Sakaka solar project); Oman and Qatar (the first utility scale solar projects) and combine direct experience in the delivery of renewable energy, energy storage and broader power projects, with technical strength and a strong track record advising sponsors, lenders and government bodies on the drafting and negotiation of finance and project documentation (in addition to O&M and EPC agreements) and all aspects of lenders’ due diligence.
Having advised in the sector since the early years of commercial renewable energy development, we have established a prominent position in the market which continues only to grow as the sector develops, technologies become more commercially viable, and investor confidence grows.
