Energy and utilities are part of a highly dynamic market with ever-changing market conditions and regulations. This results in companies in this market needing to navigate through these complex areas of business and law, and to continually adapt to constant changes. If they do not, they risk failure. Our Energy and Utilities team is ready to support you in successfully meeting these challenges.
We provide legal services for the energy and utilities sector, including advising on industry regulations and acquiring, building or financing power sources. Our track record includes advising clients during the construction of a nuclear power plant, as well as several thermal power and heating plants. Beyond the construction phase, we are also able to help set up terms for energy supplies between major industry players.
In recent years, we have specialised in renewable energy and related regulations. In particular, we have made our mark in a dispute over the retroactive shortage of photovoltaic power plant feed-in tariffs. We represented 120 clients before Czech courts as well as in international arbitrations in an unprecedented dispute against the Czech Republic.
In view of the continuing state of emergency, we would like to assure you that Glatzova & Co. remains open and we continue to unhesitatingly provide our clients with the legal advice they require.
We evaluate and monitor the current measures of the Government of the Slovak Republic and the implementing regulations of individual ministries almost daily, as well as all legislative proposals that have an impact on property rights, contractual obligations, industrial relations, financial relations and others. Every day we deal with questions related to the impact of the current situation for our clients. We advise them on the validity, possibility of change, or performance of their contracts, we deal with liability for failure to fulfill contractual obligations due to the introduction of an emergency, and we analyze in detail the liability of the State for damage caused by the restrictions imposed. We understand the economic problems of our clients and help them to solve and attune their approach to employees, contractors or regulators. Last but not least, we deal with risks of insolvency and possibilities of defense against attempts to abuse the current unfavorable situation. As always, we try to solve problems, not create them.
Although most of our lawyers work from home these days, we are always there for you. We organize meetings primarily by telephone, Skype or other forms of online communication.
We are ready to help you navigate the current issues and answer all legal questions related to current government measures or legislative changes under preparation.
