Energy Sector

The energy sector is one of the cornerstones of our economy, combining issues such as business, security of supply and sustainability. The liberalisation of electricity and gas markets, climate change, movement towards new energy sources are some of the challenges which are also reflected in the profound evolution of legal issues which confront players in the sector. Well-established operators, newcomers onto the Belgian market, wind farm developers, network managers, (large) industrial consumers, traders or regulators, are all confronted with constantly evolving regulations, sometimes uncertain or very technical, which is part of an ever broader legal landscape.

Legal practitioners in the energy sector must therefore have a real knowledge of the political and socio-economic challenges which characterise this operational environment, whilst excelling in the various pertinent legal disciplines.

Liedekerke has eminent specialists in the energy sector. Our long experience in advising various players and our extensive knowledge of the sector's regulations, combined with our ease of assembling and coordinating pluridisciplinary teams within the firm, are the foundation of our reputation for excellence in this field.

Our clients are key players in the electricity, gas, oil, and renewable energies markets in the three regions of the country. We help them not only with energy law, but also with issues as diverse as tax, environment and planning, information technologies, privacy protection, real estate and corporate law. We act within the context of mergers and acquisitions, in litigation and we counsel our clients on an on-going basis.

In each case, legal excellence and knowledge of the sector allows us to supply pertinent and pragmatic solutions, which maximise the added value for our clients.
