Energy market transactions are a constant feature of markets across the world. These can involve corporatisation of government-owned utilities as part of the inception of markets, privatisations and ongoing transactions between participants. In such a capital intensive industry, the stakes are always high, and sound, trustworthy advice is critical for boards, management, regulators and governments.
