Oil & gas sector specialists with a global presence
Our global oil & gas group consists of a core team of multi disciplined lawyers with a 100% focus on the oil & gas industry. They have a thorough understanding of the industry, its drivers and the issues our clients encounter.
Due to the pioneering nature of the industry, our oil & gas clients often work in frontier markets, dealing with complex multi-jurisdictional and cross-border transactions and disputes.
They require legal advisors who are not only skilled with a deep understanding of the industry, but have a commercial approach and pragmatic mindset that can assist clients to achieve their goals cost effectively and with a minimum of risk.
The group specialises in all areas of contentious and non-contentious disciplines in oil & gas exploration and production (E&P), upstream and downstream projects and their related infrastructure.
It is supported by a wider group of lawyers with extensive experience in the oil & gas sector across corporate, commercial, finance, projects, disputes and international arbitration. This includes specialised areas such as employment, HSE, regulatory and compliance, insurance, trading and derivatives.
We provide a full range of employment advice to oil & gas clients with operations worldwide.
Our team advises a number of well-known oil & gas entities with operations in a wide range of jurisdictions. We provide the full range of assistance in relation to employment issues from day-to-day advisory work (including advice on shift work, mobility of workers, international relocations, disciplinaries and grievances), to disputes and project and transactional work.
Our employment dispute resolution experience includes handling litigation from unfair dismissal claims to reputational whistleblowing and discrimination claims, to dealing with restrictive covenant injunctions and High Court work.
We are also one of the few London based employment groups that have dedicated pensions and immigration teams. Our pensions team provides full ranging advice in relation to pensions, including advising on pensions projects heavily investing in the oil & gas sector.
Immigration issues are managed effectively and efficiently. Our immigration team provides a full service, covering all aspects of commercial immigration.
