E.ON Selects legal panel for comprehensive Five-Year collaboration


E.ON, a leading UK energy provider, announces a new legal panel comprising Pinsent Masons, DLA Piper, and Shakespeare Martineau following a competitive tender process

The three firms, entering a five-year agreement from January 2024, will offer a full spectrum of legal services to support E.ON's ambitious growth plans in line with its commitment to the energy transition.

E.ON, a prominent player in the UK's energy sector with over five million customers, has finalized its new legal panel through a competitive tender process. While Pinsent Masons, E.ON's principal UK legal advisor since 2013, continues its collaboration, two new entrants, DLA Piper and Shakespeare Martineau, join the panel.

The collaboration, set to extend over five years, aims to provide E.ON with the comprehensive legal support required to drive its UK business forward. E.ON's general counsel, Kirin Kalsi, expresses anticipation in working with the three firms, emphasizing their strength in supporting E.ON's energy transition goals. The partnership envisions delivering solutions in the best interests of E.ON's customers and facilitating the company's ambitious growth plans.

The legal panel will contribute to E.ON's efforts in making energy simpler, smarter, and more sustainable. E.ON, with a significant presence in residential, SME, and industrial & commercial markets, plays a vital role in meeting the UK's energy needs. The collaboration aligns with E.ON's dedication to innovation and sustainability, offering tailored solutions to its diverse customer base.

Pinsent Masons' commercial partner, Laura Ayre, highlights the firm's longstanding relationship with E.ON and expresses enthusiasm for the opportunity to continue supporting the company in navigating regulatory and reputational challenges in the dynamic energy sector.

Shakespeare Martineau's head of energy, Andrew Whitehead, sees the appointment as a testament to the firm's commitment to supporting clients in the energy sector, especially as they navigate the challenges and opportunities of the net-zero transition.

DLA Piper's partner, Andreas Gunst, considers it a privilege to be appointed to E.ON's legal panel, emphasizing the clear synergies between DLA Piper's energy transition practice and the services E.ON requires to achieve its strategic objectives.

The collaborative effort among Pinsent Masons, DLA Piper, and Shakespeare Martineau is expected to drive efficiency, innovation, and seamless counsel for the benefit of E.ON's business and customers.

This strategic legal collaboration reflects E.ON's commitment to building a robust and diversified support system as it navigates the complexities of the evolving energy landscape.
