Energy

Zepos & Yannopoulos is widely recognised as having one the leading energy law practices in Greece. Its members include three former in-house legal counsels to oil majors.

Our energy expertise covers all sectors: electricity (thermal and renewables), natural gas and upstream/downstream oil, while we also have in-depth experience in very specialised sectors, such as privatisations of state-owned energy companies, in advising EU Organisations and Regulatory Authorities on the liberalisation of the energy industry in several countries (including abroad), and in drafting codes, licences and standard agreements. Indicatively, we have been chosen twice by the Greek Regulatory Authority to draft the Codes for the Operation of the Electricity System (by the system operator) and the Code for the Operation of the Electricity Trading Market (by the market operator), both initially, when they were combined and later, when roles were separated. We have advised the EU on the liberalisation of the electricity market in Jordan, the Cyprus Regulator in gas supply issues and we have recently completed a survey for the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) for the identification of administrative and operational burdens in the Greek energy legislation (electricity, gas and oil). We also have in-depth experience in contracts, operation, construction, due diligence and all aspects of regulation and commercial issues relating to energy projects.

Members of our Energy Department regularly participate in Energy Conferences.
