The growing legal market across Energy

Our 2022 Chambers USA research and findings indicated there was strong demand from law firms and entities in the energy arena for Energy Transition and Offshore Energy tables.

We spoke to leading energy firms and lawyers across the country, in addition to key industry players, to gain expert insights into these respective fields to ensure our research and future coverage will be the most comprehensive for the legal market and those looking to purchase legal services across the energy legal market.

The increased emphasis in these areas is driven by a shifting focus to clean energy, both in the USA and globally, which is expected to result in hundreds of billions of dollars worth of mandates and over 10 million new jobs across the world by 2030.

The Chambers USA Energy Transition and Offshore Energy tables will assist key stakeholders in the energy sector in choosing the very best counsel for these pioneering projects.
