Energy Law

The energy sector is fast-paced and ever changing. Are you up-to-date with the latest changes in energy regulation and policy– and have a sense of what’s on the horizon?

LexisPSL Energy helps you to keep abreast of regulatory changes and updates, to understand the commercial implications of energy law and policy, and stay on top of the latest developments in the industry.

Our digestible practice notes are full of practical hints and tips from practising energy specialists (who understand what you need to know and do, because they’ve been in your position before). With direct links for deeper research, you can dive straight in to the relevant industry codes and guidance or consolidated legislation and browse through journals that may be of interest, providing a one-stop shop for all your needs when practicing in the energy sector.

Energy law isn’t just a matter for ‘energy specialists’, the regulations affect lawyers who work on everything from property transactions to construction projects and carbon trading. Energy law is a sophisticated, rapidly changing sector, which demands a strong knowledge of UK, EU and international law. Our experts give you an up-to-date, authoritative view, backed-up by primary sources; so with less time spent on research, you’ll have more time to spend on profitable work and business development.
