Practices

Energy and Natural resources

We've been working with clients in this sector for over 50 years, helping them navigate an industry that is constantly changing.

Our clients are some of the largest and most established energy companies in the UK and indeed around the world. They are often high profile, household names who draw on our years of experience to help them grow and progress.

We advise on a range of high level issues, from oil & gas (upstream and downstream), transmission, transportation, storage and distribution to power generation, renewables and mining projects. The world economy and the UK, in particular, may continue to be largely dependent on carbon based fuels but this is recognised against a backdrop of carbon reduction commitments which involve projects to find other sources of energy. We are ahead of the curve in this area, particularly in our alternative energy expertise.

Our team has a wealth of knowledge of the many new Government, EU and ACER consultations, legislation and policy initiatives and are at hand to guide our clients through these changes.

We are a cross departmental and international team - a huge asset to our clients. Our specialists can help with a range of issues affecting Energy & Natural Resources companies including regulatory, real estate, competition law, planning and environmental, corporate, investments and taxation issues. Clients draw on the strengths of our European offices and our international network.

Going the extra mile for clients is what makes us stand out from the crowd and we pride ourselves in developing long-standing relationships. Clients choose us not only because of our extensive sector based experience, but because of our exceptional industry knowledge and being able to advise them on how to conduct their business.
