Energy law firm industry expertise

We apply that experience to identify the best route through the complex issues that affect companies operating in this sector.

  • Upstream, midstream and downstream oil and gas
  • Conventional and renewable electricity generation
  • Energy service and provision sector
  • Energy infrastructure, including transmission, transportation and distribution of oil, gas and electricity
  • Energy trading and cost-of-service rate making
  • Negotiation of energy purchase agreements and related hedging arrangements
  • Electricity, gas and water utilities on supply arrangements
  • Siting, consenting, licensing and permitting
