The most extreme strategic response to the energy transition has been the decision by some corporations to completely restructure their business and realign it to ensure it delivers their energy transition strategy.
A pivotal focus on low carbon technology and digital transformation has been at the heart of a number of restructures to date. Any change in strategic direction can have a huge impact on existing personnel. There also is increasingly high competition for talent as companies look to pivot and re-position for the energy transition.
Our global team of employment and labor lawyers are highly skilled and experienced at helping our clients effectively and successfully manage the employment and labor law aspects of national and multi-jurisdictional restructures in the context of energy transition, including large-scale rightsizings, and executive and team transitions in the framework of organizational re-positioning.
