Oil & Gas lawyers

The oil and gas industry is a challenging and exciting sector which has far reaching effects on the world we live in.

The top tier CMS Oil & Gas Team is the largest UK-based team dedicated to this industry, providing advice to clients all around the world, guiding them through all the problems and pitfalls they face. We advise on all aspects of the industry; upstream, downstream, LNG, platforms, pipelines, FPSOs, shipping and transportation, gas storage, supply chain management, decommissioning, M&A and financing included.

Acting for five of the seven ‘super major’ oil and gas companies, a host of ‘majors’, NOCs, and ‘independents’, as well as contractors and financial institutions, our Oil & Gas Team is widely recognised as a market leader.

CMS advises clients on oil and gas M&A transactions across the world. We act on deals that encompass all of the major purchase and divestment structures in the oil and gas marketplace, ranging from smaller-scale farm outs to high value, multi-jurisdictional corporate and asset transactions.

The CMS team has deep experience in advising on global oil and gas projects and supply chain management. Our lawyers have advised on projects ranging from FPSO developments, trans-national crude oil and gas pipelines and major LNG infrastructure developments to onshore gas processing plants.

CMS has considerable experience of advising clients on LNG and other gas monetisation projects worldwide, offering specialist legal expertise from wellhead to burner tip.

CMS is highly experienced in drafting and negotiating oil, gas, LNG and LPG sale and purchase agreements.
