OIL AND GAS SOLICITORS & ENERGY SOLICITORS

 

We are a modern and progressive oil and gas law firm and we operate a new legal services business model, which combines the best aspects of a traditional law firm, with cutting edge developments in the modern provision of legal services.

 

What differentiates us from most traditional solicitors practises is that we operate a hybrid legal business services model. This means that in addition to employing lawyers we also appoint consultant solicitors who deliver legal services on our behalf. Many of our consultant solicitors work remotely from low cost premises, and using the latest IT infrastructure deliver fast, effective and efficient legal services.    

 

Our business model has a very low cost base. With the exception of our administrative headquarters we only use serviced offices for basic needs such as telephone answering. Any additional fees for using meeting rooms are only incurred, as and when we use the rooms. Where possible we pass these cost savings back to our clients in the form of costs effective fee rates. We do not incur the significant cost overheads, including expensive premises, of more traditional law firms.

 

We have a dedicated team of oil and gas solicitors, who have considerable experience of advising on all aspects of oil and gas matters and projects. Our oil and gas lawyers advise on the production, processing, refining, trading, storage, transmission and distribution of oil and gas supplies.

 

Our energy solicitors combine technical and regulatory legal expertise, with commercial and pragmatic advice. Our energy lawyers take time to understand your business model, and will take this into account when evaluating the risks and potential problems of any project.

 

We advise on the following oil, gas and energy related matters:

 

  • Exploration and drilling licences and concessions – our oil and gas lawyers advise on and negotiate exploration and drilling licenses and concessions.  

  • Joint Operating Agreements and Unit Operating Agreements – our oil and gas solicitors advise on JOAs, and the contractual coordinated development of land within the contract area. Where coordination is required for a larger block of land covering an entire oil and gas reservoir, then our oil and gas lawyers can advise the parties on the terms of a UOA.

  • Acquisitions and disposals – if you are considering buying or selling an oil and gas company then our oil and gas solicitors can assist. We have extensive experience of advising on the purchase or disposal of oil and gas company shares and assets.

  • Joint Ventures – Are you considering a corporate or contractual joint venture in the energy sector? If so our energy solicitors can assist. We have extensive experience of advising on the legal and commercial implications of forming a corporate or contractual joint venture.

  • Drilling and other service contracts – Our oil and gas lawyers have extensive experience of advising on drilling and other service contracts. We can advise of the practical risks and pitfalls associated with such contractual arrangements.  

  • Project financing – we have a dedicated team of finance lawyers within the oil and gas and energy teams who can advise on, and also negotiate, project financing.

  • Litigation and arbitration – We have a dedicated team of litigation and dispute resolution solicitors, who can advise on litigation and dispute resolution, within the oil and gas and energy sectors. Where possible the focus is to try and resolve any dispute at an early stage, using alternative dispute resolution options. This is particularly so, if there are contractual obligations to use a dedicated dispute resolution procedure.
