Our teams

Nuclear Development

This is the team behind the smooth running of our Nuclear Development projects. Working closely with lawyers from EDF France and external experts, they take a ‘one-team approach’ to supporting the new nuclear programme – covering everything from planning developments to negotiating large contracts. 

Nuclear & Upstream Generation

Nuclear & Upstream Generation provide legal support for our nuclear, coal and renewable-energy production. Working with the Office for Nuclear Regulation and EDF Renewables, they monitor and advise on complex regulations and laws and oversee the day-to-day legal implications of running power stations and wind farms. 

Corporate & Dispute Resolution

Corporate & Dispute Resolution deal with IT contracts, software and other goods and services used across the company. This includes everything from property requirements, to mergers and acquisitions. The team also look after dispute resolution and litigation, ranging from low-value claims to high-value disputes with major contractors. 

B2B and B2C & Governance

The B2B team work on the contracts, trading and market analysis associated with supplying electricity to very large clients.

The B2C & Governance team advise on the growing regulations governing residential energy supply – as well as supporting the development of energy products, price changes and contracts for over five-million residential customers. The team also includes a dedicated Secretariat function that supports EDF’s boards of directors and ensures our compliance with company law.

Central Function insights

We employ over 12,000 people in the UK and have a very diverse, multidisciplinary workforce. As we both produce AND supply energy, unlike other energy suppliers we are able to provide more varied opportunities for professionals interested in ‘central functions’.
