Energy and infrastructure

Twenty Essex has expertise in heavyweight litigation and arbitrations across the full spectrum of energy disputes.

Key areas of experience include:

  • Financial, fraud and contractual disputes relating to the exploration, production, trading and supply of oil and gas.
  • Issues in the renewables market, including carbon offset trading and wind farm disputes.
  • Engineering and construction.
  • Offshore construction and marine engineering.

 

Twenty Essex is frequently entrusted with highly politically and geopolitically sensitive issues concerning the exploitation and supply of resources.

As much of the work involves complex, multi-jurisdictional litigation, members routinely act in disputes with an international dimension. They also have extensive experience of working with experts in foreign laws, in addition to detailed technical and financial expert evidence. Members work across a broad range of industries, notably oil and gas, nuclear energy, renewable energy and mining.

In addition to offering industry-specific experience, the breadth of members’ commercial expertise means they are ideally placed to advise across the wide range of legal issues raised by energy disputes. These include difficult questions of contractual interpretation and damages, tort, conflicts of law, piercing the corporate veil, fraud and relief from sanctions.

Clients include natural resource majors as well as state entities.
