Energy & Utilities
3PB has a number of members who have specialist expertise in energy and utilities-related debt recovery and are familiar with the concept of deemed contracts pursuant to the Gas Act 1986 and the Electricity Act 1989, Standard Licence Conditions (SLCs) and other regulatory and statutory issues in this area. Members regularly act for ‘big six’ energy companies in the County Court and High Court, and are able to assist where debt claims encompass other areas of law, including for example insolvency, property-related disputes, and issues arising in the context of the provision of equipment for generating electricity and feed-in tariffs (including wind turbines and solar panels). Additionally members have experience in matters arising under the Water Industry Act 1991.
In addition to the 3PB Energy & Utilities Group, members of chambers’ Technology & Construction Group have experience in energy-related construction disputes.
