On paper we’re a full-service law firm, providing legal services to companies, organisations, government departments, families and people throughout life and in business. But we offer so much more than that. Expertise, commerciality and relationships are at the very heart of what we do.

Our purpose is clear and our ambitions are unlimited: we want to unlock potential in our people and clients, inspiring confidence, growth and development. We provide creative solutions and advice that helps fulfil commercial and personal goals.

In the energy sector we have unrivalled experience acting on some of the most significant infrastructure and industry transition projects which have taken place since the UK privatisations of the early 1990s; projects where our operating model of sector specialist-led multi-disciplinary teams has proven to deliver very real benefits to our clients.

As a firm we are regularly ranked in the top tier for Energy & Natural Resources by Legal 500.

Our energy sector team is made up of lawyers from multiple disciplines across the firm, all of whom act for clients active, or with an interest, in the sector. That multi-disciplinary team is led by a small core team of specialist energy lawyers.

The knowledge our core team brings across the many dimensions of the energy landscape allows us to give clear, concise advice with a strong commercial fair.
