Analysis: Energy

Legal Marketplace Analysis

This year we single out 635 practitioners from 283 firms who are considered leading experts in energy law. Global giant Dentons leads the way in our research with lawyers from 13 of its offices around the globe selected. Baker Botts performs very strongly with its Houston office a hub of activity; following closely behind is international heavyweight Norton Rose Fulbright. Several other firms, including Herbert Smith Freehills, Vinson & Elkins and Morgan Lewis & Bockius, perform impressively.

We also highlight the leading lawyers in the world by region: North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia-Pacific and the Middle East and Africa.

Research: Trends & Conclusions

With the continuing shale boom in North America and its emergence in other jurisdictions, the busy renewables sector, and nuclear work returning post-Fukushima, the past year has been a busy one for energy lawyers. One source described the sector as “almost recession-proof”; given the growing legal market it seems the majority of firms agree. We have heard reports of burgeoning practices in key energy hubs, notably Texas, London, Johannesburg and Rio de Janeiro, which have all seen more entrants into the market over the past few years.

Most Highly Regarded Firms: Energy 2013

In this section we single out the 11 best-represented firms and 10 most highly regarded individuals in our research overall.

Norton Rose Fulbright leads our research with 27 representatives from its offices around the globe. The recent merger of two "first-class" firms in this area elevates this newly formed entity to the top of our research. Dentons is another recently combined firm to perform well this year and it has 24 lawyers from across Asia, Europe and the US selected for inclusion. Leading energy firm Baker Botts follows closely behind with 22 listings, and Herbert Smith Freehills and Morgan Lewis & Bockius both have 19 "top practitioners" singled out in this publication.

Research Trends and Conclusions: Energy 2013

For the first time since its inception in 2005, The International Who’s Who of Oil and Gas Lawyers has expanded its remit beyond oil and gas to include lawyers in the nuclear energy, renewables and power sectors. Having conducted hundreds of hours of interviews with private practitioners and in-house counsel, we whittled the list down to just over 600 individuals in 74 countries, from Algeria to Vietnam. Compiling the observations from all the people we spoke to, Who’s Who Legal takes a look at the key developments across the energy legal market over the past year.

Research Trends & Conclusions: Oil & Gas 2012

Benefiting from over 15 years of independent research, comprising hundreds of hours of interviews with the leading private practitioners and in-house teams around the world, Who’s Who Legal assesses the past 12 months in the international oil and gas legal market.

Most Highly Regarded Firms: Oil & Gas 2012

In this section we analyse the findings of our research in greater depth to identify the firms and practitioners who stand out worldwide.

Most Highly Regarded Firms: Oil & Gas 2011

Our research selects 419 individuals who are considered by clients, in-house counsel and fellow private practitioners to be some of the very best in the world in their field and jurisdiction. The research for this edition is made up of 77 countries, making it one of the broadest reaching books geographically that we have published in previous years. Several firms perform excellently in this year’s research, with a strong representation from all the major continents of the world, particularly North America.

Research Trends & Conclusions: Oil & Gas 2011

With the benefit of over 14 years of research and tens of thousands of votes from clients and private practitioners, Who’s Who Legal takes a closer look at developing trends in the oil and gas legal marketplace worldwide.

 

Most Highly Regarded Firms: Oil & Gas 2010

We have selected the 420 leading oil and gas lawyers according to the results of our research in 69 jurisdictions to be included in this publication.

Research Trends and Conclusions: Oil & Gas 2010

Richard Noakes

No other area of commercial law can match the geopolitical importance of the oil and gas sector. Recent examples include Russia’s decision to reduce the gas supply to Belarus, which caused ripples of concern across Europe, but there is also a softer side.
