We work across all complex stages of nuclear power


The regulatory, commercial, safety and technical complexities of the nuclear industry extends into the design of the legal structures that are put in place to support their development, operations and ultimate decommissioning.

The nuclear sector needs a specific breed of legal advisor with a combination of sector expertise, drawn from across many areas of law, and the ability to integrate this advice into a coherent structure. 

We work with clients in all stages of the nuclear fuel cycle to do just that, including advising governments, developers, lenders, investors, suppliers and regulators.
