Member Firm

Shakespeare Martineau LLP

United Kingdom

Shakespeare Martineau LLP is a UK law firm with an international reach. With offices in London and the governmental centre of the European Union, Brussels, as well as the UK’s second city Birmingham, we offer a full range of legal services. The firm has a strong reputation for its work in the energy, banking & financial services, investment funds, leisure & retail, education, private wealth and industry & manufacturing sectors.

Many of the firm’s clients are US companies with business activities in Europe. The firm works closely with many law firms across Europe; in the energy sector, it is the UK member of the Association of European Energy Consultants, which is a network of specialist European energy law firms.

With a commitment to its clients and their needs, the firm prides itself on exceptional partner-led service, and an impressive portfolio of clients. These include some of the major European power companies, and other large UK corporations with businesses across North America.

In the heart of Brussels, Shakespeare Martineau’s Brussels office opened in 2011 as part of a strategic collaboration with leading German energy law firm, Becker Büttner Held, at a time when EU law and policy developments were beginning to affect national energy markets like never before.

Located in the city centre’s EU quarter, the Brussels office houses a team of energy law experts who engage on a regular basis on behalf of clients with EU policy makers at the European Commission and other EU institutions. With a growing reputation in energy law at a European level, SGH Martineau provides energy, climate change, environmental and competition law and governmental affairs advice to pan-European clients in the utilities, power, renewables, manufacturing, corporate finance and real estate markets on issues relating to EU law and policy.

Shakespeare Martineau and Becker Büttner Held work closely together on key issues affecting clients operating across the European energy markets. The Shakespeare Martineau team is led by energy and climate change specialist Andrew Whitehead, who advises Great Britain’s electricity and gas system operator National Grid as well as European utilities RWE and EdF, and European power exchange operator, APX. Working closely with Andrew is fellow Shakespeare Martineau partner Mark Bartholomew, an energy and projects specialist with twenty years experience of advising in connection with the power sector. The Becker Büttner Held team is headed up by Dr Dörte Fouquet who is well known
