In spite of the tragic events in Japan in 2011, nuclear power is still recognised in many countries as an essential part of the energy supply mix in order for governments to reduce carbon emission and improve energy security.

Given the scarcity of nuclear new builds until very recently, there are very few law firms who can lay claim to a credible track record in this very specialised sector.  

Allen & Overy provides pioneering advice on a broad spectrum of issues that encompass the entire lifecycle of these assets, for example, the establishment of new laws governing nuclear regulation, development, consenting, environmental and planning process, through to the construction, financing, operation, maintenance and ultimately their refinancing or sale.  We are at the forefront of the nuclear energy market, advising debt funders (including banks, bond arrangers, ECAs, DFIs and multilaterals), sellers and acquirers (on M&A transactions), sponsors, corporates (including large vertically integrated utilities), governments, equipment suppliers, manufacturers, engineers and nuclear fuel miners and processors on market leading projects and transactions globally. These transactions are supported by our specialists in areas such as environmental law, regulatory, tax and planning.
