Energy law encompasses every other type of law, and then some.  M&A, environmental, litigation, employment and securities are some of the basic legal services energy companies need.  In addition, offshore producers employ maritime attorneys, land-based drillers need oil & gas lawyers, and new tech companies require intellectual property lawyers. 

There’s truly something for everyone in energy.

Energy Integration

Energy integration is the sequence and/or combination of activities beginning with energy research/exploration through development/production and beyond to marketing of various forms of energy to be delivered directly consumer or to further processing for consumption.

Energy Transition

Energy transition refers to the process of shifting the global economy’s production and consumption of energy from traditional carbon-intensive means to more sustainable alternatives (including renewables such as solar, wind) with the objective of significantly reducing the carbon footprint and emission of greenhouse gases, while preserving access to reliable and affordable energy.


Energy technology is concerned with developing systems capable of producing, transporting and delivering energy in a way that is safe, economical and, increasingly, environmentally-friendly.

Oil & Gas Value Chain

Energy value chain involves the sequence of activities that occur from the supply sources to trading mechanisms, by which oil, oil products, and gas, are sold in the wholesale markets.
