Bracewell’s international energy disputes practice is one of the most experienced legal teams worldwide. As Legal 500 UK (2020) notes, Bracewell has “a traditional and well established strength in the transactional space of the oil and gas sector, which is complemented by its growing disputes resolution sub-team.”

We represent clients in some of the world’s most challenging jurisdictions, including Colombia, Congo, Egypt, Gabon, Gambia, Liberia, Mexico, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Tanzania, Uganda and Yemen. No matter how complex a matter, we are dedicated to helping our clients achieve their most ambitious and innovative energy-related goals. 

We have broad experience in the upstream, midstream and downstream sectors. We represent a wide range of industry participants — from independent oil companies to large mid-caps, majors and supermajors, to operators and off-takers, to services companies and contractors — in disputes involving exploration, production, transportation, pricing, refining, processing and marketing.

In addition to high-stakes litigation, we frequently represent oil and gas companies in international arbitrations. Notable oil and gas clients include Alcazar Energy, Anglo African Oil & Gas, Apache Corporation, Chevron, Dana Petroleum, ENI, Heritage Oil, Impact Oil & Gas, M+W Group, Rhino Resources and Shoreline Natural Resources

Our power disputes practice encompasses both conventional and renewables projects. We regularly represent clients in disputes at all stages of project development, including construction and operation. Our lawyers excel at effectively resolving highly contentious issues arising from power generation, transmission, networks and related infrastructure.
