Energy and Natural Resources
Legal services and comprehensive legal support according to Russian law to organizations in the field of production, transmission and sale of electricity and heat, companies in the fuel and energy complex
One of the activities of the BRACE Law Firm is the provision of legal services to organizations in the energy sector. We provide legal assistance on issues arising in the production, transmission and sale of electricity and heat, as well as other energy resources. Our customers are energy supplying organizations and suppliers of natural energy resources, as well as legal entities - consumers.
The main reasons for the emergence of disputes in this area include inadequate contracts, agreements and other documents regulating the relationship between the parties, both among themselves and with state bodies, as well as untimely reaction to changes in legislation.
Therefore, the activities of companies in the energy sector require increased attention, and their legal support seems vital. Lawyers specializing in energy and subsoil use, in addition to fundamental knowledge in law, need knowledge and understanding of non-legal aspects of their clients' activities.
Over the years of work in our company, a professional and competent team of specialists has formed, capable of providing qualified support to companies of the fuel and energy complex and consumers.
