Ince & Co 's power team has a strong track record in the renewables space, particularly in the field of offshore wind power projects, and practice leader Martin Sandgren was recently instructed by a leading Central European utility companies to advise on all the regulatory, due diligence and tender process issues arising from its proposed investment in the UK offshore wind market. A major Chinese power company also appointed Sandgren's outfit - which includes managing associate Nirada Griffiths - to intervene in its acquisition of a large offshore wind farm in Northern Europe. The group was also engaged by five different contractors and suppliers to intervene in four different tender and contract mandates with regards to a single UK offshore wind farm.
