The Amman office team represents a diverse range of clients, from large multinational and regional corporations to small and medium businesses, NGOs, investors and entrepreneurs; benefitting from being part of the Eversheds Sutherland network, this has enabled the group to also offer a seamless crossborder service on multi-jurisdictional matters.

The firm has the largest, most experienced team of clean energy experts who advise on all aspects of renewable energy technologies; having advised on over 40 GW of renewable energy projects across the globe and specializing in onshore and offshore wind, solar, biomass, hydro, waste to energy, CDM projects and biofuels. Eversheds Sutherland is one of a few firms which advise across the full project lifecycle in clean energy, from securing the development rights to project finance, to subsequent disposal/ decommissioning.

Eversheds Sutherland has acted for a significant number of developers and funders in the MENA region and in Jordan, where the firm advised on 10 of the 12 solar projects in round 1 and 2 of the 4 solar projects in round 2, and currently advising on a round 3 project.
