Randall is a partner specialising on disputes arising primarily in the energy and natural resources sector. He is described as a “disputes expert” and “name to note for energy arbitrations”, and complimented for “providing recommendations not just advice” by the legal directories.
Currently splitting his time between our London and Dubai offices, Randall acts on energy-related disputes and project counsel mandates globaly. He advises oil & gas, mining and power companies, as well as engineering and construction contractors, on a broad range of issues, including relating to concession agreements, joint operating/joint venture agreements (including JOA accounting principles and pre-emption rights), gas sales, supply chain and transportation/processing agreements. He also has experience of disputes relating to PPA and offtake agreements as well as construction and engineering disputes in the oil & gas (onshore and offshore) and power sectors.
Randall also advises on related public international law issues (such as investment treaty protections, sanctions and UNCLOS), both at the outset of a project and when disputes arise.
Admitted as a barrister and solicitor in both New Zealand and Australia, Randall has experience in all forms of dispute resolution, including international arbitration, high court and expert determinations.
