The Mayer Brown Oil & Gas Lawyers’ Forum is a teleconference call or webinar, held regularly since March 2020 and hosted by Oil & Gas lawyers from the firm’s London office.

At a time of low oil prices and the COVID-19 pandemic, the Forum addresses topics of interest for lawyers working in the industry, such as Force Majeure, distressed counter-parties, the state of the oil & gas M&A market, the future for the North Sea and the state of oil & gas markets in Latin America.

Our sessions in July covered Treaty Arbitration and Financing and Refinancing for Oil & Gas Projects, including breaches of covenants, prolonged defaults and preparing for a debt restructuring.

The Forum will take a break over August and reconvene in September 2020. If you have any questions about this Forum, or would like to join, please email Jodi Young at
