The energy practice group is one of the strengths of Vlăsceanu & Partners.

The continuous changing regulations, the fast deployment of renewables, the rapid growth of energy demand, the need to increase energy efficiency and to lower the impact over the environment represent only some of the challenges of the energy sector requiring highly specialized and experienced lawyers. Our attorneys have extensive expertise in the energy sector, having managed strategic projects and having assisted many of the key stakeholders of the Romanian market (including producers, suppliers, distributors, traders, project developers, industry associations and banks financing the energy projects).

Due to the direct industry background and vast experience of our attorneys, we understand the commercial drivers in the sector and we are able to provide, apart from exquisite technical advice, also industry insight and recognition of business objectives.

On top of a good understanding of the specific energy rules and regulations, providing legal advice in the energy sector requires an interdisciplinary approach covering multiple fields such as the environmental law, urbanism and construction law, antitrust and state aid law, corporate and commercial law, mergers & acquisitions.
