Dedicated advice across energy and natural resources

Our energy & natural resources lawyers support the development of the global energy supply chain by helping clients across the full life cycle of projects, from planning and funding (including PPP/PFI), developing and operating to refinancing and sale.

Our team applies a truly global perspective, advising on significant infrastructure projects in both developed and emerging markets, to our sector expertise in oil, gas, power, renewables, mining and natural resources.  We advise a range of industry participants, including energy investors, sponsors, developers, contractors, operators, suppliers and insurers to complete our wholesale understanding of the market.
