Our clients include land owners, service providers, consultants, exploration and production companies as well as investors.
Our combination of technical skill and sector awareness allows us to provide an outstanding level of service. We understand the issues surrounding, and the challenges faced by, our clients’ businesses.
We can provide you with corporate, commercial, intellectual property, employment, commercial property, dispute resolution and insolvency services. We are particularly experienced in advising clients on corporate transactions within the energy and natural resources sector, including corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions and strategic alliances. Away from commercial requirements our private client teams can also look after the personal needs of our clients, whether they need a will, help to move home or even advice on matrimonial issues.
