It is reassuring to know that Beauchamps have considerable experience and expertise in the field. They understand the commercial subtleties of complex legal agreements which is invaluable.
The energy team in Beauchamps spend time to get to know our energy projects individually and therefore can be (and are) proactive in providing advice on issues as they arise and certainly before they can become critical.
Well connected to the local market and provides client-focused advice.
It's difficult to mention a certain main strength, as we get the feeling that Beauchamps has an excellent understanding of all areas of our business.
Ainsley and his team has successfully brought us through two wind farm financings over the past two years and have consistently shown a great ability to overcome tricky issues that arise during the due diligence period.
Strong energy sector experience. Practical hands on advice. Ainsley Heffernan is very knowledgeable and user friendly.
The depth of knowledge from the Beauchamps energy team is very impressive. They have expertise across a number of areas including property, planning law, construction and project finance. The difference is they are able to draw upon this expertise from within the energy team, rather than having to pull in lawyers from other departments across the firm. In my view this leads to a more seamless service.
The team is extremely well organised and well integrated with other departments across the firm. Ainsley Heffernan, along with his team, has a unique and in-depth understanding of both the corporate as well as renewable sectors. He manages work flows in an extremely efficient and transparent manner.
What sets them apart from other firms we have dealt with in the past is the efficiency of the solutions provided; issues are closed out in a concise, commercial and effective way with no unnecessary fuss.
