    We advise governments and national oil companies (NOC) across the globe on protecting and developing their resources.

    Our dedicated team of oil & gas lawyers has years of experience of advising NOCs and draw upon their wealth of knowledge in the industry to advise on the most suitable legal and contractual regimes to apply.

    We recognise the necessity to ensure that resources are exploited in the most profitable manner for the client, both economically and socially. We also understand the legal complexity of managing a country's hydrocarbon resources, including consultation with a wide audience and the need to maintain a delicate political balance.

    We have worked with a number of NOCs to negotiate contracts and production sharing agreements, source financing and establish judicial frameworks.

    We have worked with them to develop a reliable infrastructure and have advised on all aspects of commercial trade including trade sanctions and bribery and corruption. We have also advised numerous NOCs on their disputes with their international oil company (IOC) contractor counterparts.
