Oil, Gas & Utilities

The oil, gas and utilities sector faces significant public scrutiny and competitive pressures. Accordingly, we endeavour to provide innovative, nuanced and practical advice to our energy and utility clients. We act for major energy companies, public utilities, and service and consulting firms in the oil, gas and utilities sectors.

Our work in the energy and utilities sectors is multifaceted. On a day to day basis we work with human resources managers advising on individual employment issues. When required, we provide sensitive, highly confidential and expert advice to senior management concerning restructuring. Recently we have drafted new enterprise agreements for a number of our energy and utilities clients so that they can achieve better returns from their workforce. When our energy and utilities clients have faced major industrial action by unions we have fought hard for our clients’ interests. During times of crisis we mobilise our entire firm to quickly alleviate threats to our client’s businesses. Our boutique size and specialist expertise means we can quickly respond to whole-of-company threats.
