The experience and network they have makes them one of the leading firms advising on clean energy projects and transactions. They are also ‘real’ people – very approachable, collaborative and build strong relationships. We see them as trusted advisers who act in our best interests to get the best result for us.’

‘Kay Hobbs really knows this sector, is well connected and provides useful insights. She provides a high-quality service, works quickly and pragmatically and is focused on “getting the deal done”. I would recommend her to anyone.’

‘Matthew Grimwood is one of the team’s leading clean energy property lawyers and has advised on all property aspects of our extensive portfolio. He is well experienced on all clean energy property matters and works well under pressure – he is highly rated by our team.’

‘I have always received a first-class service from the TLT team in the renewables space. They seem to have great corporate and real estate associates and partners and an excellent sector knowledge and reputation.’
