We can handle any energy or infrastructure related project, investment, transaction, dispute, or regulatory issue. Drawing on the synergies between our market-leading Oil & Gas, Power, Renewables, Infrastructure, and ESG Practices, we build teams that share experience and best practices across industries in forward-looking, innovative ways.
With a seasoned understanding of market disruptors, major economic fluctuations, and dynamic regulatory environments, we are remarkably well-positioned to help clients work through current issues, as well as to help clients prepare for the opportunities and challenges arising from the global transition to low carbon energy.
Serving Key Oil & Gas Players
We have decades of experience advising clients on their largest and most complex transactions across the entire oil and gas value chain — from well-head to LNG, refining, and petrochemicals. Because of our work advising many of the world’s leading oil and gas exploration and production companies, oil field services and equipment companies, as well as downstream chemicals and fuels companies, we have a comprehensive understanding of the oil and gas business. Coupled with our work advising financial institutions, private equity firms, and government entities active in the industry we are able to spot the risks and opportunities our clients will face. Our Energy Regulatory & Markets lawyers provide excellent support to oil and gas clients and regularly practice before government and regulatory agencies in various jurisdictions.
Navigating the Global Power and Renewable Energy Landscape
Whether clients are working with power generated through traditional or renewable fuels, Latham lawyers collaborate across practices and jurisdictions to serve leading sponsors, financial institutions, investment funds, and developers operating in the US and virtually all of the world’s major energy centers. We help clients navigate project development, finance, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, as well as regulatory, litigation, and investment strategies. We regularly handle first-of-their-kind and novel deals involving fossil-fired power generation, renewable power generation (offshore and onshore wind, utility and distributed solar, geothermal, biomass, and biogas), nuclear power generation, and other electric power technologies.
As forward-looking advisors we counsel clients on recent trends and emerging related business opportunities involving fuel cells and energy storage, as well as carbon capture and sequestration projects. Working in tandem with our Energy Regulatory & Markets lawyers, the Latham team collaborates to meet clients’ business objectives with respect to the development, regulation, and commercialization of their power and renewable projects.
Building and Investing in Infrastructure Around the World
Our infrastructure team represents governments, funds, sponsors, funders and developers across the entire asset class, including transportation, digital, social and energy infrastructure. We have supported our clients as the definition of infrastructure broadens and redefines and we provide tailored advice to help our clients deliver their objectives and business plans. We regularly work with our deep bench of experienced regulatory, environment, tax, and real estate lawyers in structuring, buying, selling, developing and financing infrastructure assets combining our first rate technical knowledge with our deep understanding of the sector.
