We have one of the largest and most dynamic energy practices in the world.

“Noted for its impressive reputation in the projects and infrastructure space on large energy work.” Chambers Global, 2021

Our lawyers are spread across every major energy market, supporting our clients across the entire energy value chain. We are proud to be at the heart of the transition to a low-carbon economy and help our clients in all industries assess and respond to the opportunities and challenges this presents, as brand value in this sector continues to change.

With the strongest global network of skilled renewable energy legal advisors, we offer leading strategic advice on the rapid and disruptive transformation of the energy sector and have led an unprecedented number of successful and innovative ‘country first’ and ‘technological first’ transactions in emerging markets. We have unique insight into the digitalization of the energy value chain through the use of distributed ledger technology and blockchain, and have extensive knowledge on the development of new global markets, such as energy storage, LNG-to-power, hydrogen economy and floating offshore wind.

Having in-depth industry knowledge and thorough understanding of the current energy landscape allows us to work in partnership with our clients, comprised of Japanese and international project companies, sponsors, utility companies, developers, contractors, investors and financiers, on all aspects of the development, financing, acquisition and disposal of large, complex energy and energy infrastructure projects around the world. Our Tokyo team works hand-in-hand with our global colleagues to advise on projects and transactions across the renewables, hydrogen, power, LNG, oil and gas, natural resources, petrochemicals and other energy infrastructure sectors.
