Our Commitment to Diversity


The extraction of resources, development of infrastructure, and supply of energy forms the basis of global economic development. As one of the largest and most influential sectors across the globe, the energy industry powers all other industries.

The energy industry is transforming in response to the evolution of technology and is met on all sides by regulatory, environmental, economic, political, technology, and social influences. Sustainability and renewable energy are no longer niche issues for energy companies and end-users, instead, they have become a cornerstone in strategy and investment decisions. Consumer awareness of environmental impacts is also accelerating change in the industry; however, significant roadblocks, such as outdated policy, infrastructure, and increased litigation, can hinder progress.

Our interdisciplinary, cross-office, global Energy team has worked on projects around the world. Our energy transactional experience is deep and thorough, ranging from new project development to investment in and acquisition of operating and development-stage infrastructure and facilities, energy services companies and energy technology companies, including transaction due diligence, structuring and documentation. Our energy disputes team has a long history of successfully resolving energy disputes among owners, operators, contractors and subcontractors, and their insurers at all levels. The firm has successfully represented clients in trial and appellate courts and before domestic and international arbitration tribunals around the globe under a multitude of different laws

Energy has undoubtedly been key to the development of society, but it also has brought on major issues and concerns. The industry is tricky to navigate, which is where our lawyers can help. Whether you are an international company, operator, distributor, or investor, we can help you no matter where you fall on the supply chain of the global energy space.
