Regulated industries

Climate change as a regulatory megatrend will reshape the scope of business-related environmental and regulatory law. New reports on how climate change and climate risks affect economic life appear almost every day.


Large-scale industrial undertakings require forward-thinking legal support in order to meet complex, sector-specific requirements in a highly regulated environment.

We provide a range of services to them including the structured analysis of legal risks, the development of effective strategies and the identification and resolution of potential challenges relating to approval procedures and regulatory compliance. We collaborate closely with our clients to develop innovative solutions that not only satisfy the relevant legal requirements, but also support their business objectives.

A central challenge associated with regulating climate change is the transformation of the energy and transport sectors. We are working closely with local communities, municipal utilities and companies at the forefront of the energy and transport sectors’ transformation.

The development of renewable energy sources such as wind farms and photovoltaic systems, as well as e-mobility projects, are focal aspects of our work in this area. The challenges are enormous – and regulatory requirements are setting the course. Hydrogen will be critical to the success of the energy and transport sectors’ transformation. Green hydrogen will replace coal, oil and gas as a second industrial energy supply mainstay alongside power from renewable energy sources. The objective is clear: H2 readiness.2-Readiness.

Ramping up the hydrogen market from hydrogen generation to industrial applications and hydrogen mobility will take massive investments and hands-on business acumen. The substantial subsidies available under the German Hydrogen Strategy will pave the way for the market in the same way that the Renewable Energies Act paved the way for the renewable power roll-out in 2000. We advise our clients in this process.
