Energy & Mining

United Kingdom

Whether you are in the public sector, a utility, energy company, investor or contractor, we act for participants worldwide across the energy industries and mining sector.

It is impossible to craft engineering contracts or resolve disputes that arise (whether domestic or international) without a holistic understanding of the various sectors, the multitude of industry form agreements that are on offer and the myriad of intricate dispute resolution options, procedures and rules that are available.

A core part of our global Energy & Climate Change team with a remarkable depth of resources in multiple jurisdictions and practice areas, we understand our clients’ businesses; the challenges they face, including fluctuating market conditions, regulatory uncertainty, governmental investigations and continuous advances in conventional, renewable and clean energy technologies, as well as the specific risks that are inherent in all energy and mining projects.

Our Energy & Mining Team has particular expertise in contract procurement and execution and in the arena of dispute avoidance, management and resolution (both domestic and internal) in the fields of mining, power (examples include power stations, dam projects and all types of plants), oil and gas (examples include LNG terminals and facilities, FPSOs and pipelines), renewable energy (examples include biomass projects), energy from waste, and the construction and installation of pipelines and sub-sea cables.
