Our London office opened in 1998 and has a growing team of both UK and internationally qualified lawyers. Our lawyers have an in-depth knowledge of the complex legal issues facing any enterprise looking to invest and do business in the United Kingdom.

On the transactional side, the London office has a large dedicated energy team. Recent assignments have included pipeline projects, gas projects (including LNG and gas-to-liquids), mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures, project financing, infrastructure projects, privatization, oil and gas exploration and production and carbon emissions trading.

In addition to the energy sector, we are deeply entrenched in transactional work in all its forms, from M&A, to joint ventures, to advice on capital markets. Particular industry focuses include technology, media, telecoms, petrochemicals, life sciences and financial services sectors.

The London office includes a thriving dispute resolution practice with experience in complex litigation and international arbitration and mediation. The office also includes an intellectual property team with broad experience in all IP areas, including litigation. 

The London office was recognized by researchers in the latest Chambers UK publication for its work in the Projects and Energy: Energy & Natural Resources category and in the latest The Legal 500 publication for M&A. We pride ourselves on the team approach we bring to every engagement, and we believe our collaborative approach improves the results we earn for our clients.
