At MLA, we have a growing and respectable practice spurred by the increasing interest of independent power producers (IPPs) in the generation of power in Ethiopia (hydro, wind, geothermal and solar). MLA lawyers also advise EPC contractors and other players in the energy sector

MLA lawyers were closely involved in advising a major wind power company from France

MLA lawyers advised a major IPP from Israel on a hot power purchase agreement (PPA) and participated in the negotiations of the hot PPA with Ethiopian authorities

Some of the advisory and representation legal services our lawyers provide in this regard include:

  • Drafting and reviewing hot PPAs and PPAs
  • Negotiating the terms of hot PPAs and PPAs with the relevant government authorities 
  • Advising clients on the optimal legal structuring  of PPAs;
  • Advising clients on investment, company registration and licensing, permits, employment, tax, capital registration, foreign loans and repatriation in the post-PPA period
