Clean Energy Pipeline, a source of news, data and analytics for the renewables finance industry, has launched its Clean Energy Legal League Tables 2023 report, ranking the top 20 law firms that provided legal advice on clean energy M&A and project finance deals in 2022.

Over the last 10 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 2022, the firm featured in third place for M&A deals, with 52 transactions that amounted to £705 million in total value.

In terms of the Project Finance League Tables, Burges Salmon ranked 14th in the Top 20 Legal Advisors by Number of Deals table for nine transactions, totalling £555 million.

Partner Camilla Usher-Clark, who leads Burges Salmon’s Corporate Energy M&A team, says: “Given that we are a UK law-focused firm and are up against some of the world’s largest law firms, to feature so highly in this year’s Clean Energy Pipeline rankings speaks volumes about the quantity and quality of transactions that we advised our clients on last year.

“To be placed 2nd on an aggregate basis for deal volume over the past 10 years makes us very proud and is testament to both our fantastic team and also to having the right mix of expertise across the firm to be able to advise on some of the largest, most interesting and complex energy and net zero deals across the UK.”

Burges Salmon’s specialist Energy & Utilities and Net Zero lawyers advise 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.
