Pinsent Masons

Long-term legal support for negotations and contracting

Legal firm Pinsent Masons continues to advise Inch Cape on the drafting and negotiation of a number of the project’s major supply chain contracts that will be put in place to enable the construction of the offshore wind farm. The firm’s Scottish team primarily leads on this work.

Outcomes

Pinsent Masons has worked on Inch Cape for a number of years developing a solid knowledge about the project and its requirements.  In that time, many of the firm’s Scotland-based lawyers have played leading roles in both shaping contracting strategy as well as drafting and negotiating various construction and operations & maintenance (O&M) contracts with a UK-wide and international supply chain. The firm has also provided secondees to embed within the team and provide concentrated support. The firm’s long-standing involvement on the project has played a central role in supporting the professional development of Pinset Masons market leading renewable energy team.

Iain Macphail, Partner at Pinsent Mansons said:

 “We have been delighted to work so closely with the Inch Cape team to support the development of this hugely significant offshore wind farm in Scottish waters.  It is immensely satisfying for us to support a project which will contribute in such a material way to the country’s net zero ambitions.”
