Energy Specialty Group Report

The Energy Specialty Group has particularly focused on issues relating to oil and gas, both upstream and downstream activities.

The Energy Specialty Group has regularly held breakout sessions during the TAGLaw international conferences. In addition to discussing oil and gas during these sessions, issues relating to other energies, such as wind and solar energy, have been topics on the agendas.

The Group has members from many of the main oil producing jurisdictions, including Europe, the United States, South America, Asia and the Middle East.

Due to the typical multinational character of the oil and gas industry, the Group has exchanged views not only on legal issues, but also how to serve other member firms' clients when doing business in other jurisdictions.
