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.
We have a deep understanding of the oil & gas industry allowing us to provide a rapid response in times of adversity so operations can continue with minimum reputational and monetary cost.
The global disputes group is renowned for its pragmatic approach and resolute focus on the commercial needs of clients. We have a team of litigators who devote 100% of their time to the oil & gas industry and are widely acknowledged as industry leaders.
