Rob Wilson is a partner and Head of the firm’s Energy Disputes Practice. He has been advising on disputes since 1994 and has worked with the energy sector since 1998.
Rob is dual qualified (Scotland and England & Wales) and experienced in litigation (both in England and Scotland), international arbitration (including UNCITRAL, LCIA, ICC and LMAA) as well as mediation both as mediator and in representing clients. He is also often engaged by clients with regard to the avoidance of disputes before proceedings are commenced. Much of Rob’s work is of an international nature and in particular he is known for advising on construction/engineering issues arising out of EPC contracts.
Rob’s team is an extension to the firm’s transactional oil and gas, power and renewables team. This allows for a seamless flow in the advice required by energy clients. In recent years the team has advised on a wide range of energy disputes including JOA disputes, LNG and natural gas price reviews, transportation and processing disputes, termination issues, pipeline disputes, FPSO and rig disputes, insolvency issues, EPC disputes involving variation orders, consequential loss and force majeure claims, investment treaty claims, defects claims in relation to power stations and wind farms, judicial review proceedings in relation to renewables projects and regulatory breaches in the power sector.
