We understand that hydrogen is a critical component of the global effort to decarbonize the energy industry and are committed to working with clients to advance sustainable and low-carbon solutions for the production, storage, and use of hydrogen.

Our team leverages its deep knowledge of the legal and commercial aspects of the hydrogen industry to help clients navigate complex transactions, regulations, and disputes involving hydrogen produced by either steam-methane reforming or electrolysis. Our cross-disciplinary approach enables us to provide clients with comprehensive legal advice that takes into account the full spectrum of energy issues they may face with respect to hydrogen.

With organizations focusing more resources into hydrogen technology, a significant effect is the availability of federal tax credits.
