Energy Sector

We have and continue to advise and play critical roles across a number of high profile energy deals and transactions

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 energy and natural resources team is renowned for advising clients across the sector 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.
