Energy Law


Our multi-jurisdictional group dedicated to the energy industry brings together commercially focused lawyers with a thorough and updated understanding of the various sectors of the industry and a sound knowledge of the latest international industry trends.

Based on the needs of each particular client and/or project, the team works closely with other specialists drawn from our tax, environmental, litigation and competition practices. Some of the Firm´s lawyers regularly contribute with articles on energy matters to generalist and specialised domestic and international publications, such as Sweet & Maxwell´s International Energy Law.

ESK energy team also counts amongst its members lawyers who have previously worked as in-house counsel for energy companies, which allows us to have an industry perspective of most of the major issues that energy companies face. Our practitioners are regular participants and speakers at energy conferences and seminars, both in their respective jurisdictions and abroad.

We advise companies, financial institutions and governments across the globe regarding a wide range of challenges across the whole spectrum of the energy and resources sector through a combination of pragmatic, commercial advice and innovative solutions.

Our lawyers provide a comprehensive legal service to our energy and resources clients in the following areas: upstream and downstream oil and gas, pipelines, LNG, refining and petrochemicals, power, renewable energies, water and mining.
