Energy sector

“The energy market requires extreme flexibility and specialisation so as to always be one step ahead!” 

(Matthias Baier, Public Accountant/Tax Advisor)

In an environment that is constantly changing, we help our clients to master the challenges of a complex market. We are very familiar with the special requirements of the industry, and provide support with the fiscal and legal implementation or projects connected to the energy sector. The challenges and innovation models involved in the transition to alternative energy resources are also reflected in the relevant laws and require the corresponding implementation and often a new approach. The actors in the energy sector are called to identify their roles, their rights and their obligations. 

The need for holistic, specialised one-stop consulting that keeps pace with the legislative authorities and maintains an overview of the complex, multilayered legal situation is all the greater. MTG Commercial Law Firm guides and supports actors from the entire value chain of the energy sector. Here, we aspire to support our clients in the best way possible and also to break new ground with them, think in new ways, and build bridges to the future together. 

Our services also include the following:
