Energy & Climate Change

Singapore

Energy demand is projected to almost double in the Asia and Pacific region by 2030. There is an urgent need for innovative ways to generate power in a socially, economically, and environmentally sustainable manner. Compounding the problem is widespread energy poverty across Asia, with almost a billion people still without access to electricity.

Our Energy team based in Singapore advises international investors, governments, regulatory bodies and energy companies on some of their most significant and complex deals. We support clients during all stages of the resources' life cycle in both transactional and contentious work.

We provide and coordinate advice on the regulatory framework, conduct due diligence on companies and assets, draft and negotiate investment, acquisition, and shareholder agreements and assist on trade sales and listings.

We also advise on operational and infrastructure arrangements such as refining plants, roads and ports, project financing and commodity sales and marketing agreements. We support (through a network of trusted local firms) interaction with regulators and regulatory outcomes, as well as bringing an awareness of reputational implications. Our mining clients include global resource groups, large multinational corporations, and junior exploration and mining companies.

Despite best intentions, disputes can arise. CMS Singapore advise on a full range of general commercial disputes including matters relating to fraud, shareholder disputes, insolvency and financial services. Our team is also expert in defamation and reputation management for which we are consistently ranked in the top tier by legal directories.
