Oil & gas sector specialists with a global presence
Our global oil & gas group consists of a core team of multi disciplined lawyers with a 100% focus on the oil & gas industry. They have a thorough understanding of the industry, its drivers and the issues our clients encounter.
Due to the pioneering nature of the industry, our oil & gas clients often work in frontier markets, dealing with complex multi-jurisdictional and cross-border transactions and disputes.
They require legal advisors who are not only skilled with a deep understanding of the industry, but have a commercial approach and pragmatic mindset that can assist clients to achieve their goals cost effectively and with a minimum of risk.
The group specialises in all areas of contentious and non-contentious disciplines in oil & gas exploration and production (E&P), upstream and downstream projects and their related infrastructure.
It is supported by a wider group of lawyers with extensive experience in the oil & gas sector across corporate, commercial, finance, projects, disputes and international arbitration. This includes specialised areas such as employment, HSE, regulatory and compliance, insurance, trading and derivatives.
Our combination of oil & gas sector experience and legal knowledge ensures we can advise on the broad range of corporate transactions and commercial contracts.
Our dedicated corporate and commercial oil & gas team have advised clients across all areas of the oil & gas industry from major international oil companies and state oil companies, to clients engaged in exploration and production and oilfield services.
We have advised on some of the largest, high-value, cross-border and domestic mergers and acquisitions (both corporate and asset deals and restructurings and reorganisations) in the international oil & gas industry. We have a wealth of experience across all aspects of oil & gas financings, including public and private capital raising, debt and equity investment, venture capital and capital market transactions.
Our in depth sector knowledge ensures that we are able to work extremely efficiently through all stages of the deal and can appreciate and manage the business implications of the legal issues, focusing on the points that affect value.
