Energy & Utilities

The energy and utilities sector has seen a rapid rise in its public profile in recent years

Security of supply, carbon reduction, energy nationalism, the rush for resources and renewable energy are among the issues that have brought the sector to the attention of the public and investment communities.

This dynamic, evolving sector is under increasing scrutiny and intense competitive pressure. Many jurisdictions have adopted a more open and liberalised regulatory model. As a result, companies are seeking ever more innovative and practical advice from their lawyers.

International oil and gas companies, leading financial institutions, major utilities, sovereign wealth funds, private equity houses, government bodies and single asset operators come to Linklaters for insightful advice and fundamental understanding of their business, the markets in which they operate and the pressures they face.
