Taking the risk out of your energy operations


Addleshaw Goddard has extensive experience throughout the UK and international oil and gas sectors, from work involving upstream, midstream and downstream oil and gas companies and services and supply chain businesses to industrial offtakers and major oil and gas infrastructure.

We have acted on numerous oil and gas deals, projects and disputes all over the world, including M&A, JVs, equity, equity-linked and debt fundraising and financing transactions and the full range of upstream contracts (such as host government agreements, production sharing contracts (PSCs), concession agreements, license agreements, joint operating agreements (JOAs), joint study and bidding agreements and farm-in/farm-out agreements) and have particular expertise in relation to disputes, sanctions issues and anti-bribery and corruption investigations and in the North Sea, Africa, GCC and CIS regions.

We also have strong expertise in advising on restructurings involving oil & gas companies, where our sector specialists work closely with our restructuring team.

Our sector specialists draw on their extensive experience of advising a wide variety of oil and gas stakeholders, from supermajors, oil and gas infrastructure operators and Tier 1 contractors to independent E&P companies, hydrocarbon offtakers and oil and gas technology companies, both on the buy-side and sell-side, to deliver practical and commercial contractual and transactional advice right across the value chain.

Risk management is a key issue for those working in the sector, given the nature of their day-to-day operations. Our ability to deploy specialist sector knowledge gives us a significant advantage in identifying and evaluating risks associated in corporate and commercial transactions, major projects and potential disputes in the oil and gas sector.
