Legal services to meet the needs of the energy and resources sector
We help our clients, which include commercial lenders, development banks, export credit agencies, governments, international financial organisations, project sponsors and suppliers and purchasers and contractors, respond effectively to the changing shape of the energy and resources sector, brought about by market liberalisation and its implications - including market consolidation and restructuring. We can assist you in meeting the ever more complex demands of regulatory frameworks, such as in emissions and energy trading, by providing top tier legal advice and industry knowledge.
The global energy and resources group monitors industry trends, such as developments in nuclear power, to help give you the edge on issues that continue to dominate the energy and infrastructure sector.
Our global mining & metals group comprises lawyers from across our international network of offices who advise a broad range of companies in the mining and metals sector including major mining companies, junior mining companies, development banks, international financial institutions, commercial banks, ECA's, contractors and governments across the full range of issues that apply to the sector.
Our global oil & gas group is made up of acknowledged legal experts in the oil and gas industry. Members of our group can advise on the complex legal, commercial and technical issues associated with upstream, midstream and downstream developments worldwide.
We provide top-tier legal expertise in the power sector, including in nuclear and renewables, for global clients around the world through our offices in Asia Pacific, the Americas, Europe and the Middle East and Asian offices - a network that few firms can match.
Liberalisation of the energy markets has already led to many new regulations and increased market activity. It is therefore vital to keep up-to-date with recent developments. Please see our Energy Alerter for how you can keep up-to-date with market activity.
