Technical excellence combined with worldwide industry experience across the energy and natural resources sectors
Our energy and natural resources team spans our global network with expertise across oil & gas, mining and natural resources and conventional power and renewables.
A series of geopolitical and market factors has driven volatility in the commodities markets and exerted downward pressure on profitability across the energy and natural resources sectors. In contrast to this, accelerated by the increasing global focus on tackling climate change, improving our approach to sustainability and the decreasing costs associated with renewable energy technologies, the renewable energy sector is growing at a pace. Navigating this new operational landscape presents a variety of challenges, but also opportunities, for which businesses in the sector need to be well prepared.
Our global energy and natural resources group is renowned for advising clients across the sector worldwide with a track record of assisting with the many and varied challenges our clients operating in these sectors are facing. Due to our broad client base, ranging from operators, contractors, sponsors and developers to government entities, we understand the variety of challenges faced on a day-to-day basis and are at the forefront of market developments, ensuring we can continually provide clients with practical, timely advice.
Our global energy and natural resources specialist team consists of lawyers who are experts in their field and deliver commercial, pragmatic and best practice advice across all areas of contentious and non-contentious disciplines, backed by a deep understanding of the complexities of the industry. In particular, we have depth of experience of advising on corporate transactions in the sector, including high-value M&A, joint ventures and financings, and are adept at managing business critical, cross-border, big-ticket litigation and arbitration.
