A reliable energy supply is essential and in the truest sense of the word vital. Energy supply is therefore subject to more intensive legal regulation than almost any other economic sector. It is intended to guarantee security of supply for all citizens and industry as well as competition among energy suppliers, and increasingly to protect the climate and the environment. In this area of conflict, Luther offers first-class legal advice in all areas of energy law.
As one of the largest German commercial law firms, Luther has a renowned team of specialized and experienced lawyers. The main focus of the energy law team is on advising energy suppliers and energy-intensive manufacturing industries on energy industry and regulatory law, energy contract law, renewable energy law under the EEG, combined heat and power law under the KWKG and energy antitrust law.
In addition to our excellent legal knowledge, we have the necessary industry knowledge, technical know-how and political understanding to successfully advise our clients. We know innovative business models of new providers in the field of e-mobility and sector coupling as well as the "classical" business models of energy suppliers and industrial customers.
We advise our clients before national authorities such as the Federal Network Agency, the Federal Cartel Office and the BAFA as well as before the European regulatory authority ACER or the EU Commission. Our excellent litigation competence before state courts and arbitration tribunals is widely recognized. For projects with an international dimension, we have an international network of law firms which, like us, focus on the energy sector.
Our clients include integrated energy supply companies, energy trading companies, transmission and distribution network operators, wholesale and retail suppliers, energy-intensive industrial companies, banks and financial investors as well as project developers in the energy sector.
