Main Areas of Practice:
Bracewell is consistently at the forefront of developments across the energy value chain, including in connection with the global energy transition. We are unmatched in our ability to provide a comprehensive offering for market players, given the significant number of Bracewell lawyers who are focused on each aspect of this sector. In the oil and gas sector, we represent upstream exploration and development companies; oilfield service businesses; pipeline, storage, and terminals companies; refining and chemicals companies; commercial banks, trading houses, investors and private equity investors involved in oil and gas; and investment banks, other intermediaries and strategic advisors to oil and gas companies and investors.
The power team represents utilities, independent power producers, retail electric businesses, commodity trading houses and investors in a wide range of transactions and regulatory and compliance matters relating to conventional and renewable power sources and transmission.
Bracewell has been at the forefront of developments and innovations related to renewable energy and sustainability. Renewable sources, such as solar, wind, biomass, hydropower and hydrogen development — combined with carbon capture, energy storage and ESG practices — involve complex legal, financial and regulatory issues that we are well-positioned to address because of our depth and vast experience. We have developed targeted practices – such as regulatory, environment, tax, intellectual property and strategic communications – to serve our energy clients.
