Energy continues to be one of the most active sectors globally and Weil remains at the forefront of industry trends, where we have been involved in many of the significant M&A, restructurings, financing transactions and complex disputes that have helped shape the industry in recent years.  We are engaged in cutting edge matters for all constituents in the industry involving nearly every legal discipline and every office at the Firm. 
Weil has significant experience in the energy industry, which extends to all facets of the oil, gas and power sectors. Our experience includes upstream, midstream and downstream work and ranges from oil and gas exploration and production to marketing, retail, and energy trading operations, as well as to the growing area of renewables.

Addressing Significant Energy Sector Issues

Weil’s Corporate Department has a stellar track record advising energy companies in high-value transactions. These matters have included significant transactions for such clients as Kinder Morgan, Access Industries, Apache, HM Capital, BlackBrush, TexStar LP, Magnetar Capital and General Electric, among many others.

Weil’s Restructuring Department has represented clients in a variety of roles in some of the most complex, multinational energy reorganizations in history. On the company side, as debtor’s counsel, Weil’s expertise and creativity have enabled clients to reorganize when many observers thought reorganization to be impossible. Expertise and creativity are equally important on the lender side, where Weil has assisted clients in maneuvering through the complexities that frequently exist with energy-related collateral, allowing our clients to maximize their recoveries while also leading them through the reorganization process.  

Weil’s Litigation Department has handled many cases of great commercial significance to energy companies, including successfully defending clients against private, government, and class action lawsuits. Additionally, we litigate, mediate, and arbitrate swap agreements, ISDA master agreements, trading contracts, netting agreements, reserve reporting, toxic exposure, exploration and ownership rights, ERISA, shareholder derivative and securities litigation, and intellectual property and trade secrets issues both domestically and abroad.
