A North East commercial law firm is to advise The Crown Estate on energy and Infrastructure.
Bond Dickinson, which has offices in Newcastle and the Tees Valley, among others emerged from a competitive tender process to secure one of two places on The Crown Estate’s legal panel.
Based in London, The Crown Estate is valued at £8.1bn. The property managed by the company is owned by the Crown, but is not the private property of the monarch.
The firm will advise on the marine aggregates business as well as on transmission and pipelines.
Nick Page, Bond Dickinson’s chairman, said: “We have a long-standing relationship with The Crown Estate and we look forward to continuing to strengthen our relationship by making a contribution in key areas of The Crown Estate’s business.”
Norton Rose Fulbright was appointed to the panel and will advise on offshore wind, carbon capture and storage, wave and tidal energy.
