The 'extremely proactive' energy practice at Stibbe continues to be instructed on a range of regulatory, corporate, financing, project development and contentious matters. The team acted for Limburgse Reconversie Maatschappij on the development, contract negotiations and project financing of the Kristal Solar Park in Limburg. It also advised CGN Europe Energy on its acquisition of the Windvision-Enerconwind wind farm in Estinnes, Wallonia. In another work highlight, Rony Vermeersch led a team that assisted Google with power purchase agreement negotiations with Belgian offshore wind farm operator Norther. Frederik Vandendriessche, who is 'a leading legal expert in his field', heads the practice and attracts praise for his 'great interpersonal and communication skills'. Associate Cedric Degreef is another key name to note.
