We believe that a solid grasp of policy and sector trends is critical to rendering comprehensive advice to clients in our focal sectors, particularly if project development is contemplated. Accordingly, there is a strong policy component to our legal advice. Our unique experience in the formulation of public policy for the new legal, regulatory, policy and commercial landscape for our focal sectors provides a unique platform that enables us to structure our advice and clients’ transactions in anticipation of future policy, legal and regulatory changes.
Solid understanding of your business
Our regular interaction with industry participants, including our client’s project teams has deepened our knowledge of the commercial and technical issues that lawyers must appreciate in order to effectively render advice. Thus, we are equipped with the tools to undertake detailed reviews and provide our clients with comprehensive solutions to the issues that come up in their projects or transactions.

Winning combination of strong in-house and external counsel perspectives
Some of our lawyers have extensive experience as senior in-house counsel with major oil and gas companies and financial institutions. We also have lawyers that have distinguished themselves in law practice, thereby offering our clients a mix of the best qualities of in-house and external counsel perspectives. These qualities include a commitment to provide the highest quality service at the best overall cost, taking into consideration our client’s needs for prompt and complete updates.
