M&A, joint ventures, investments and partnerships
For some companies, M&A is the only option to ensure that their business can adapt to the energy transition. M&A and investment activity in renewables and energy transition technology continues to rise as companies seek to increase their exposure to renewable energy assets and new energy technologies and adapt their existing businesses and portfolios to meet the demands of stakeholders and regulators.
Entering into a joint venture with another industry participant or an investor is a way to fast-track investments into new technologies and/or diversify into different industries.
Consolidation in carbon intensive industries such as oil and gas is also set to continue as demands for oil and gas change as they find their place in the new energy mix.
Our global team of corporate lawyers have an excellent track record of managing and successfully completing complex energy transition-related transactions. We regularly advise on both cross-border and domestic mergers and acquisitions for companies looking to expand and diversify their businesses and financial investors who see opportunities in the energy transition.
