DWF's sizeable UK presence and strengths across multiple disciplines enables it to assist domestic and international clients with every aspect of their most important gas, electricity and renewable energy projects. Its work covers corporate and finance transactions, commercial and regulatory advice, and also assistance with real estate, planning and environment aspects of projects. Procurement work is another facet of the practice. The firm's first-rate reputation is reflected by its client roster, which includes Scottish Power Group, Babcock International Group and Gildemeister Energy Solutions.
