The Energy Sector

The energy sector has five main characteristics. First, it is capital intensive. Second, it is specialized. There is little in common between the oil industry (conventional and unconventional), the nuclear energy industry, the gas industry (natural gas and LNG), the power industry, and the renewable energies industry. Among renewable energies, there are significant differences between solar, wind, hydro-electricity and other renewables. Third, the energy sector is sensitive to variations of the price of commodities. Fourth, the sector is heavily regulated. Fifth, it is directly dependent on government take and governments tend to change the rules of the game depending on their needs

Support Legal Services

These characteristics make the energy sector a strong candidate for major disputes. These disputes inevitably entail complex technical, contractual, political and regulatory aspects. When there is an international element – and an international element is often present – these disputes generally go to international arbitration. This would entail us to act as solicitors and barristers rendering legal services to your clients. The projectable legal services are:

  • Due Diligence
  • Searches
  • Perfections of Documents
  • Advisory and consultancy
  • Risk Identification and Legal audit
  • Taking Correspondences
  • Representations
  • Securitization
  • Legal Advisory

Service Administration

The available fee option is on job basis with reimbursable expenses. In addition to the core services enumerated and described above, Millhouse Legal Advisory can further provide critical value-added services as part of our Corporate Commercial support offering.
