Clifford Chance is proud to see six members of Clifford Chance's Global Renewables Group ranked in A Word About Wind's Legal Power List 2022, an independent publication that ranks the top 100 lawyers that exert the most influence on the wind industry globally.

  • Liesbeth Buiter, Partner (Amsterdam)
  • Clare Burgess, Partner (London)
  • José Guardo, Partner (Madrid)
  • Ross Howard, Partner (Singapore)
  • James Pay, Partner (London)
  • Hein Tonnaer, Partner (Amsterdam)

These rankings demonstrate our track record of helping clients develop, finance and invest in offshore and onshore wind projects across both mature and emerging jurisdictions. Our experience includes many first-of-a-kind "greenfield" projects; complex portfolio M&A transactions and financings involving commercial banks, development banks, ECAs and institutional lenders.

James Pay, the head of Clifford Chance's Global Renewables Group, said: "We are delighted to have been recognised in the Word about Wind Legal Power List with six entrants from key jurisdictions across the globe. The number of ranked lawyers is testament to the breadth of our practice and our involvement in the market-leading deals that are shaping the renewables market for the future."

Ben Cook, lead editor of the 2022 Legal Power List, said: “As the wind industry has continued its rapid expansion, so the legal expertise available to the sector has been significantly enhanced. This year’s Legal Power List demonstrates how the depth of wind industry know-how found among private practice lawyers in particular, has increased substantially. The result is that companies in the wind sector now have an array of top legal talent to choose from.”
