For the third year in a row, the firm's international Energy & Infrastructure team improved its ranking in the Clean Energy League Tables: by number of transactions, the team ranked fourth in the M&A deals category, while it also secured a place in the top 20 in the project finance category.
In 2019, Taylor Wessing ranked already in the top 10 of the aforementioned categories.

"Together, we were again very successful for our clients on clean energy projects, and not only in Europe, but also on deals in Australia, the US, Africa and the South Pacific."
