Clean Energy

Through Cleantech Cadre, we provide innovative, strategic solutions to help our clients deploy cleantech projects, manage risk and environmental liabilities and accelerate the growth of younger ventures.


gunnercooke’s Clean Energy services are delivered via our Cleantech Cadre brand. Cleantech Cadre was founded with a unique iron focus on the growing cleantech sector, to serve the legal and policy needs of organisations involved in improving sustainability performance, manage operational risks and environmental liabilities and deliver sustainable solutions.  

We have been privileged that many of our clients have come to us based on personal recommendations from other clients, and as senior business leaders have moved to join or set up a new business, they have instructed us again.

​We seek to be aligned with our clients and avoid taking on matters for other clients that could challenge that alignment. We won’t represent aggressive fracking businesses or those illegally disposing of hazardous waste.

We have created a number of novel project structures that have been approved by the energy and environmental regulators and satisfied insurers and investors.  Some of our clients have joked that we should be developers rather than advisors.

We work best as part of your team.  We know just when the time is right to bring in the right disciplines to deliver the most efficient result for our clients.  We maintain a roster of specialist allies internationally who we know can deliver successful, meaningful collaborations. We can lead or be led by engineers, environmental consultants and other specialist solicitors and barristers who slot together in an egoless manner, working with the client’s existing resources.
