Notable Representations, Key Contacts

We are engaged in cutting-edge matters for all constituents in the industry involving nearly every legal discipline and every office at the Firm.

Addressing Significant Energy Issues Across Sectors

Oil & Gas

Few law firms in the world can match Weil’s collective experience and knowledge of the oil and gas industry, which extends to all facets of the sector – from exploration and production, to marketing, retail, midstream and infrastructure, and energy trading operations. Weil remains at the forefront of industry trends, and has been involved in many of the formative corporate transactions in the marketplace from public and private mergers and acquisitions, to innovative joint ventures and financing structures to the most high-profile restructurings, including both debtor and creditor side engagements. Furthermore, our attorneys have handled many disputes of great commercial significance to companies in the sector, including successfully representing companies and their boards and executives in commercial, securities/shareholder, product liability, consumer, antitrust, and patent infringement, trade secrets, and other IP litigation, as well as regulatory and internal investigations. 

Energy Transition

We combine our longstanding expertise in traditional energy sectors with a forward-thinking approach to assist companies and investors throughout the energy transition space on transactions involving renewable fuels, carbon capture and sequestration (CCUS), hydrogen, energy storage, and energy efficiency/greenhouse gas reductions, among others. With a keen understanding of market dynamics and the evolving global energy landscape, our energy transition lawyers draw upon the resources of a full-service, global firm, collaborating seamlessly across borders and practices. Notable, our industry-industry leading Private Funds team recently advised Brookfield Asset Management in forming the Brookfield Global Transition Fund, the largest-ever fund dedicated to supporting the transition to net-zero carbon emission, for which partner Andrew Chizzik was named “Dealmaker of the Year” by The American Lawyer.

Power and Renewables

We have a proven track record of providing strategic counsel to conventional and renewable power producers, utilities, and other market participants such as construction, engineering, and industrial manufacturers. We advise clients on the full range of transactions, including mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures and project development involving a range of power and utilities assets. We also have extensive experience litigating and arbitrating significant disputes arising out of the development and construction of renewable energy power plants, and major IP litigation involving wind turbine and other technology at the core of these operations. Our lawyers also possess a deep understanding of the regulatory frameworks governing the power sector, including conventional power generation, transmission and distribution, renewable energy, and energy trading.
