King & Spalding’s Global Energy Practice

King & Spalding’s energy practice is one of the largest, most experienced and most extensive in the world.

More than 250 King & Spalding lawyers offer wide-ranging expertise that spans every sector of the energy industry—from oil & gas to power, nuclear to mining & metals, and renewables/alternative energy to infrastructure projects. With energy lawyers in offices in Houston, London, New York, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Riyadh, Moscow, Paris, Geneva, Singapore, Washington, D.C., Austin, Frankfurt, Atlanta and San Francisco, our team is well-equipped to handle matters around the world. From establishing key bases for our world-class international arbitration practitioners in North America, Europe, the Middle East and Southeast Asia, to making sure our transaction teams have a “real-time” regional presence in the world’s major energy hubs, our global reach puts our expertise at the fingertips of clients wherever they do business. To date, we have advised on energy matters in more than 90 countries across six continents.

King & Spalding was specializing in the industry long before it became popular for law firms to have dedicated energy practices, and our clients likewise benefit from the lessons we’ve learned along the way. Our knowledge of the commercial aspects of the energy industry and energy law enable us to find creative solutions to the business issues our clients face. We leverage the extensive on-the-ground experience of our lawyers who have learned from the inside—former in-house lawyers for leading global and national energy companies; leaders of energy industry trade groups; former managers, engineers, scientists and government officials—to ensure timely and effective results.

Recently, King & Spalding was named “Energy Advisory Firm of the Year” at the prestigious Petroleum Economist Awards 2014, impressing the judges with “the breadth of customer projects taken on by the firm and, in particular, its strong presence in LNG” as well as the expanding “global presence” of more than 250 energy lawyers in 17 offices worldwide.
