Energy & Infrastructure
The Swiss energy market is rapidly changing, and Walder Wyss is a leader in providing advice on the legal issues related to this development. We advise both electricity suppliers and corporate clients on competition and regulatory issues, particularly in connection with the Swiss Federal Electricity Supply Act and the drafting of contracts. We also represent parties in litigation before the Competition Commission (COMCO), the Federal Electricity Commission (EICom) and the Federal Administrative Court.
A particular area of specialisation is the expansion of infrastructure for the generation and transmission of energy. With our sector-specific expertise in public procurement, environmental law and data protection issues, we are the leading authority for legal issues and opinions in the area of power plant construction, grids and smart metering.
