Clients with interests in oil and gas, electric and renewable energy call on our Chambers-ranked energy team to navigate the complex mix of global markets and regulation across six continents. Our energy transactions team includes lawyers with many years of experience working in the leading petroleum-producing states of the Middle East/North Africa region, who are able to counsel clients in a variety of languages, including Arabic.
The history of energy is a volatile one, as markets shift under the pressure of extreme price swings, technology breakthroughs, geopolitical stresses and environmental change. Yet from risk emerges opportunity: the possibility of making new discoveries, developing new markets, expanding value in existing businesses and accessing new sources of capital. Our Middle East energy transactions lawyers are fully integrated within our global energy transactions team, spanning our offices in Houston, Rio, London, Paris, Dubai, Singapore, Beijing and elsewhere. They combine a truly international perspective on energy deals with a wealth of practical experience operating across the Middle East region.
Our team serves the oil and gas sector (upstream, midstream, and liquefied natural gas, refining and petrochemicals), the electric power sector (conventional and renewable, including wind and solar, and transmission), and financial institutions, investment funds, project developers, state-owned enterprises and public-private partnerships in the energy sector.
