With the worldwide population expected to hit 9 billion by 2040 and urbanisation rates projected to be 63% in the same time frame, global energy demand is set to grow.

Remaining agile is key for this sector and the need to rethink strategy, optimise efficiencies across the value chain and strengthen balance sheets  is gathering pace as complex regulatory environments, geopolitical risk, disputes and market disruption increase.

We work with clients across the energy lifecycle on some of the world’s largest and most high profile projects and disputes. Our sector expertise rooted in a deep understanding of the complexities and implications of global trends the sector is facing.

Wherever your project or head office is located, we can assemble and deploy a bespoke team drawing on both global expertise and local experience to ensure you meet your commercial objectives.
