A Real History in Renewables

Unlike some, we’ve been involved in Renewable Energy for years, starting with Scotland’s very first onshore wind farms. 

Since those early days, we’ve remained completely focused on Renewable Energy and have expanded from a single person into a substantial, fully integrated team involved in many of the biggest and most challenging renewables projects in Scotland. We’re also working on projects in other parts of Britain for clients who are expanding their generating base beyond Scotland.

Our generating expertise now covers:

  • onshore and offshore wind,
  • wave & tidal,
  • hydro,
  • energy from waste,
  • solar,
  • photo voltaic (PV), and
  • biomass.

This expertise has been delivered for developers, individuals, communities, local authorities, financiers and landowners.

We remain at the cutting edge of the industry. Recently we advised the developers of Scotland’s first commercial wave project and we are currently advising the lead developers of the Pentland Firth tidal and wave generation schemes.

Our sharp focus allows us to swiftly understand key developments within the industry. The breadth of knowledge in our team allows us to understand not only property matters but also planning difficulties, grid connection issues and specialist issues involving agricultural and crofting matters. Our strategic approach gives our clients a head start in anticipating and planning for the risks associated with these issues.

Clients like our straight-talking and pragmatic approach which delivers tangible results. We work collaboratively with clients to deliver maximum value – firstly by working hard to develop a thorough understanding of their business goals and priorities and then becoming an integral part of their team.

Whatever the size, shape or generation medium of your renewables scheme, you’ll be welcome at WJM. Our dedicated Renewable Energy legal team has the experience, industry knowledge and commercial acumen to help ensure that:
