Overview

Gibson Dunn is prepared for the energy transition. We have a wide array of experience across all parts of the energy sector – from traditional sources of energy such as oil and gas and electric utilities to renewable forms such as solar and wind. The firm has handled energy-related matters involving numerous practice areas, including mergers, acquisitions and divestitures; debt and project finance; capital markets; joint ventures; fund formation; project and infrastructure development; dispute resolution; commercial arrangements; and all manners of energy-related regulatory and antitrust issues. This experience enables us to provide clients with a deep bench that is unique among law firms.

Recognized by Law360 as one of its Energy Practices of the Year for 2023, the Energy Group consists of more than 170 lawyers in 15 offices worldwide, with three distinct areas of industry focus:

  • The Oil and Gas Practice advises exploration and production companies, midstream companies, downstream companies, private equity sponsors and other financial institutions in complex transactions across the oil and gas sector. Our practice focuses on complex transactions and matters (domestic and international) from well-head to burner tip, including upstream (onshore and offshore), midstream (gathering, processing, transportation, fractionation, and storage), liquefied natural gas (LNG) and downstream (petrochemicals and refining) assets.
  • The Power and Renewables Practice advises utilities, renewable energy companies, IPPs, private equity funds and other investors, investment banks, project sponsors, lenders and other industry participants on many of the most important power projects and transactions in the U.S. and around the world. Our practice focuses on mergers and acquisitions, renewable and conventional power projects, financings and capital markets transactions, investments, joint ventures and other complex transactions, and includes close familiarity with the generation, transmission, distribution, storage and marketing businesses.
  • The Energy, Regulation and Litigation Practice has litigated some of the highest profile energy cases over the past few years in both federal and state courts, and has deep experience against the handling regulatory, rate case, enforcement and investigation matters, before the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC).
