The nuclear industry’s complex regulatory framework and rapidly evolving landscape mean that businesses need legal advice that goes beyond consent, compliance and corporate governance.

Working across the nuclear industry, our specialist nuclear energy lawyers provide comprehensive, commercial advice. 

You’ll benefit from our expert nuclear law capability, built over years of supporting nuclear operations, including both civil and defence programs. Advising clients in the UK, France, Hungary, Korea and the Middle East, we have the breadth to guide you across many key legal jurisdictions.

Whether you’re negotiating or delivering contracts in nuclear new build, existing fleet or decommissioning we can provide support on all aspects including contracting strategy (e.g. preventing disputes), procurement, appointment of contractors, professional services agreements and obsolescence of plant contracts. Due to our global network and highly specialized teams, we are able to offer practical and creative solutions in the most complex national and cross-border disputes. 

Our experience means your business will get the right advice. 

Our team members have been actively involved in developing the procurement strategy for nuclear new build in the UK; providing a tiered contract approach under NEC3 and FIDIC. 

We’ve advised on major decommissioning, waste transportation and storage projects in the UK and application of export controls in the nuclear industry.

Because our specialist nuclear lawyers work seamlessly with other key legal disciplines across our network, you can also draw on dedicated outsourcing, employment, IP, regulatory, environmental and disputes lawyers in 21 countries across Europe, the Middle East, Asia Pacific, Africa and North America, lawyers who shape the industry.

Developing, advising and leading. We go beyond purely legal advice.
