Matheson establishes electricity market

Irish corporate firm Matheson Ormsby Prentice has worked alongside the UK’s Wragge & Co to establish a single electricity market for Ireland.

Matheson acted for the Commission for Energy Regulation and the Northern Ireland Authority for Utility Regulation in relation to the legislation, licensing and transition aspects of the single electricity market.

The team was led by projects and construction head Michael O’Connor.

Wragges advised the regulatory authorities in relation to the legislation, licensing and restructuring of the contractual arrangements required for and transition aspects of the single electricity market.

Energy partner Derek Goodban led the team supported by partner John Cooper and associate Gus Wood.
