Energy and Natural Resources
39 Essex Chambers offers a breadth, depth and quality of Energy and Natural Resources expertise that is unrivalled at the Bar. Our barristers have industry expertise in the oil and gas, renewables, nuclear, electricity, mining, biomass, EfW and water sectors. Uniquely at the Bar, we deal with disputes that arise at every stage of the commercial life of an Energy and Natural Resources Project: planning; financing; environmental and sectoral regulation; ESG litigation, construction; operation; partnership disputes; pricing; insurance; and decommissioning.
We act for and against: governments and state-owned entities; major multinationals and independent exploration, generation, distribution and production companies; developers and promoters; debt and equity funders; local authorities; national regulators; specialist contractors; and professional services providers.
We litigate, arbitrate and mediate in the UK and across numerous international jurisdictions. While most of our international work relates to the resolution of disputes through international arbitration, we are also home to barristers who have rights of audience in the British Virgin Islands, California, the Caribbean, Dubai, Ireland, Hong Kong, Malaysia, New South Wales, New York, Pakistan, Singapore and Queensland.
