Utilities and sector regulation
Utility companies and regulators frequently seek out our global utilities regulation group for its extensive experience of advising on international regulatory and licensing regimes, where regulatory frameworks meet antitrust and competition legislation.
You can depend on our experience of applications and major new facility approval proceedings and be reassured by our confident handling of major investigations and appeals over licence obligations and price controls.
A corner stone of our energy practice, the team spans Europe, Asia, Australia, Canada, Africa, the Middle East, Latin America and Central Asia, so giving you an unrivalled international perspective.

- abuse of monopoly power
- affiliate transactions
