Vinson & Elkins has been labelled by Global Arbitration Review’s GAR 100 2019 as the “arguably one of the leading firms when it comes to energy work."
For decades, our clients have turned to both our domestic and international Energy Disputes lawyers around the world to assist in virtually every type of contract, project, or investment related to energy or related infrastructure development — including in relation to arbitrations. We
are fortunate to have those clients turn to us again when disputes arise, whether commercial disputes or disputes with the host state authorities.
In the energy sector, the matters we work on cover the full range of upstream, midstream, and downstream disputes, including exploration, production, pricing, pipelines, shale, and LNG, as well as all aspects of power generation, transmission, and sales. We are intimately familiar with the complex
technical issues energy disputes typically involve. In addition, by combining the complementary industry knowledge of our lawyers firm wide, we can keep the bigger picture in mind.
V&E's Disputes lawyers regularly team with our regulatory and transaction lawyers to draw on their comprehensive knowledge of the energy business. We work closely together to tailor arbitration agreements to energy complexities, to advise clients concerning rights and obligations under their
agreements, to assist clients to try to avoid disputes and, if a dispute does arise, to prepare the best claim or defense.
With the energy industry constantly evolving and new frontiers being sought in some of the more remote parts of the world, V&E’s International Disputes team is your strategic counsel of choice.
