TLT has been ranked second in Clean Energy Pipeline’s 2023 Clean Energy Legal League Table, recognising the firm’s position as one of the most active clean energy advisers in the UK.

The Clean Energy Legal League Table ranks the world’s top 20 law firms that acted as a legal adviser on clean energy project finance and M&A deals in 2022. The annual ranking includes law firms who have advised a mix of developers, companies and investors on transactions for global clean energy project developments and technologies.

TLT ranked as the second most active adviser in terms of the number of M&A deals completed in 2022. The ranking is based on TLT advising on 59 clean energy M&A deals throughout the year which saw over £1.4bn of investment. The firm also ranked eleventh for the number of project finance deals, for having advised on 11 deals in 2022.

Kay Hobbs, corporate partner at TLT said: “We’re delighted to once again be ranked as one of the top three most active clean energy advisers globally in Clean Energy Pipeline’s Clean Energy Legal League Table, moving from third place in 2022 to second place in 2023. It has been one of the busiest years on record for the team and, again, we have been involved in some of the largest and most ground-breaking clean energy projects in the country. It’s an honour to have our work recognised in the legal league table, which reflects our position as a leader in clean energy and a go-to adviser in the sector. We’re grateful to all the clients and advisers we have worked with in the last year and we look forward to continue working together helping them to prepare for what comes next.”
