We support clients developing e-mobility solutions, including electric vehicle charging infrastructure, smart grids, battery storage, and the technology and intellectual property that unpins the e-mobility ecosystem.
Most law firms look at e-mobility through a single lens. We don’t. We recognise that understanding this industry requires a real knowledge of how areas, such as mobility, energy and digital infrastructure, power management systems, software, data and payments solutions, interact – and we're experts in all these.
Expertise that spans all modes of electric transport
We've built our knowledge and expertise in electric transport by working with a wide range of industry clients, from established operators to some of the most cutting-edge tech businesses currently influencing the international e-mobility sector. We're working with clients across all modes of transport. Whether it is electric vehicles, e-bikes, e-scooters or electric trains, we have it covered.
Our work for clients includes advising on:
- Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure (EVCI) transactions and projects, including procurement, tax and planning advice.
- Technology and intellectual property that underpins and supports the e-mobility ecosystem, including payments, data, digital regulation and Mobility as a Service (MaaS).
- Energy regulation and battery storage solutions.
- Product liability and safety issues.
Advice for technology that disrupts and challenges
The technology being developed in e-mobility cuts across geographic borders and so do we. With teams on the ground across Europe, Asia and the US, we’re plugged into the right innovation hubs, applying our legal expertise to technologies that disrupt and challenge the laws that govern it.
