Our objective is simple - to deliver seamless, sophisticated and forward thinking advice to our clients where ever they are in the world.

We have been advising on matters of energy law for over 150 years and are today one of the leading legal practices in the sector.

We bring to our energy clients in-depth legal experience in projects, corporate transactions, dispute resolution, arbitration and commercial work. Specialist teams focus on sectors such as electricity, oil and gas in all the major global markets.

We advise on pre-export finance, pre-payment finance, tolling finance, structured commodity finance, reserve based lending, stock and counter trade finance.

We work on energy projects around the world. We work for financial institutions, international corporations, governments and commodity producers and purchasers including national oil companies and utilities.
