Commercially focused energy trading advice to assist global clients

Our energy trading team has a deep understanding of the global energy supply chain and helps clients to navigate successfully through difficult markets. We provide support for traders in the global markets and advise on long term contracts for sourcing energy and energy trading on and off exchange.

Our clients include oil and gas multinationals, power utilities, international trading companies, independents, banks and finance houses.

We have experience of advising on all energy and environmental products including power from conventional and renewable sources, gas, LNG, oil, coal and emissions allowances, traded on spot, forward and futures markets.  We also advise on the associated infrastructure including pipelines, gas and power networks, refineries and storage facilities.

The energy sector continues to face many unique challenges. Global demand for energy continues to rise, resulting in increased competition for consumption of traditional forms of energy.  At the same time, however the use of fossil fuels is coming under increasing political scrutiny, presenting entirely new challenges for energy traders. Our trade & commodities lawyers thrive on helping our clients meet these challenges. Our pragmatic and commercial advice helps our clients succeed, finding solutions in difficult jurisdictions and getting deals done.
