Silver Shemmings LLP have the experience to understand the challenges faced by those industries that can loosely be referred to as being within the Energy sector. With further stringent controls, tightening emissions targets for carbon dioxide and other pollutants harmful the environment and/or health, many companies now appreciate the need update their processes and storage plants.
In addition, as the demand for these commodities grows globally there is increased pressure on companies to expand existing plants or seek new sites.
The Government also recently announced that it is to "fast track" the construction of a number of nuclear power plants to meet the growing need for energy as well as streamlining planning control to encourage the building of alternative energy plants using such resources such as wind, solar and tidal power.
All of these issues and many others create a range of challenges for organisations in the sector. Silver Shemmings can use their experience and specialist skills to help. Whether the project is in the UK or overseas our team can provide both legal and commercial advice on and tailored drafting of:
- supply agreements

We also appreciate that disputes on projects can occur regardless of training and advice. Consequently our team has the experience and is able to provide advice and representation in dispute resolution including mediation/ conciliation, adjudication, arbitration and litigation.
