The SGH Martineau corporate team has been advising Naked Energy, an award-winning British renewable energy company specialising in solar technology. The company has been focusing on the commercialisation of its unique technology over the past two years and has instructed SGH Martineau on a broad range of matters from corporate structuring to gear the business for rapid expansion to securing seed-capital investment.
Managing Director, Christophe Williams said “This is an extremely exciting time for Naked Energy, and as we move forward this year to grow and develop our products we need advisors in place that we can trust to provide us with advice that is prompt, experienced and commercial. SGH Martineau, with their extensive knowledge and expertise in acting for companies in the renewable energy sector, have been able to provide us with excellent commercial guidance across all areas where we have consulted them on. They understand the specific requirements of a growing business in the industry and have been an invaluable resource on which we can rely as we continue to drive our business forward.”
“Naked Energy is a company that is on the cusp of the becoming a leader in the renewable energy market with its ground-breaking technology,” said corporate partner Rishi Malliwal. “It is always exciting for us to be involved with and help an ambitious business reach its growth potential. We have one of the leading renewable energy teams in the UK, advising a broad range of clients from start-ups to established developers on all aspects of their projects including tailored corporate structures, the negotiation of commercial agreements such as construction and intellectual property contracts, and assisting with the raising of finance and investment required for growth. The fact that we also act for many of the venture capital funds and banks lending to the renewable sector gives us an invaluable insight into their requirements and enables us to advise companies seeking finance in the industry. We are looking forward to building upon our working relationship with Naked Energy as they continue to develop and expand in the future.”
