Clean Energy Pipeline, a source of news, data and analytics for the renewables finance industry, has launched its Clean Energy Legal League Tables 2022 report, ranking the top 20 law firms that provided legal advice on clean energy project finance and M&A deals in 2021.

Over the last nine years, Burges Salmon has been the second most active law firm in clean energy M&A deals, according to Clean Energy Pipeline’s annual tables. In 2021, Burges Salmon featured in second place for M&A deals, with 61 transactions that amounted to $1.3 billion in total value. In terms of the Project Finance League Tables, Burges Salmon ranked number eight in the Top 20 Legal Advisors by Number of Deals table for 18 transactions, totalling almost $1.9 billion.

Burges Salmon’s Energy team advises a diverse mix of developers, utilities, and investors on transactions involving clean energy project developments and technologies, including solar, onshore/offshore wind, energy storage, hydro, geothermal, grid infrastructure, energy efficiency, hydrogen, green transportation, carbon capture & storage (CCS), biofuels, biomass and waste-to-energy.

Clean energy deployment is set to accelerate both in the UK and internationally in 2022, as a major pillar of the net zero agenda. In turn, net zero requires flexibility and a breadth of experience from legal teams in order to support clients with more holistic advice, something on which Burges Salmon has plenty to offer.

Partner Camilla Usher-Clark, who leads Burges Salmon’s Corporate Energy M&A team, says: “We’re extremely proud to feature so prominently again in this year’s Clean Energy Pipeline rankings. It’s a real testament to the hard work of our whole sector team and to the passion and ambition of so many of our lawyers who collectively have a strong desire to help our clients drive forward clean energy deployment and their own net zero agenda.
