Vinson & Elkins is best known as a world-leading energy law firm, particularly in oil and gas, with a client base that includes some of the largest oil and gas companies and premier private equity companies. Our cross-border experience spans the legal aspects of virtually all areas of the oil and gas value stream in nearly every energy-producing region in the world.

Our strong reputation is a reflection of the number of lawyers at our law firm – more than 60 percent – who spend a majority of their time on energy and natural resource related matters. That deep bench has three concrete advantages for energy companies:

  • Lawyers in supporting practices – tax, environmental, and regulatory – have a unique perspective in all things energy.
  • Every lawyer on any team, from associates doing due diligence to senior partners structuring transactions, is steeped in energy.
  • Our breadth and depth of experience gives us a unique knowledge of what is “market” even for cutting-edge deals, giving our clients an advantage in structurings and negotiations.

V&E is known for its particular strength in energy and infrastructure projects. We have represented clients in a broad array of projects throughout the world, including greenfield, brownfield, inside-the-fence, and privatization-related projects involving power generation and electric transmission facilities.
