Energy Lawyers

A key driver of the global economy, the energy sector is affected by geopolitical, economic and regulatory pressures. You require advisors who understand your industry and work with leaders of energy companies, regulators, governments, industry bodies and investors on the cutting edge of commercial, regulatory and risk issues in the sector. As the leading firm in the sector, CMS is the leading firm in the energy sector globally, boasting an internationally integrated practice providing services to energy companies operating around the world. We have helped to shape the sector by advising on some of the most high-profile and ground-breaking projects and transactions over many years both in UAE and the Middle East.

Our dedicated energy lawyers work in every part of the sector, including upstream and downstream oil & gas, electricity, nuclear and renewables.  Whether you are a NOC, IOC, independent, electricity company, investor, government or financial institution, we have the energy specialists to meet all your strategic challenges globally. Our multi-disciplinary teams were among the first to advise on ground-breaking global oil and gas M&A and on power and renewable projects in the Middle East and around the world, including advising on historic electricity industry reform in Mexico and on the establishment of a single electricity market in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
