Energy & Infrastructure

Latham’s Energy & Infrastructure Industry Group provides a globally integrated multi-disciplinary powerhouse team to serve global players across a full spectrum of the energy and infrastructure market.

Why Latham

Whether clients’ issues are transactional, regulatory, or dispute-based, we are equipped to handle any energy and/or infrastructure related matter, drawing on our market-leading experience in several core areas, including:

  • Oil & Gas: We have decades of experience advising clients on their largest and most complex transactions across the entire oil and gas value chain – from well-head to LNG, refining, and petrochemicals. We have a comprehensive understanding of the oil and gas business, given our work advising a wide-range of industry participants, including upstream, midstream, downstream, and OFS companies, along with sponsors, financial institutions, investment funds, and government entities active in the industry. 
  • Power & Renewables: We are market leaders in the power sector, representing clients on their largest and most important matters across the globe. In both conventional and renewable power, we collaborate across practices and jurisdictions to serve leading sponsors, financial institutions, investment funds, developers, and government entities operating in all of the world’s major energy centers. We regularly handle first-of-their-kind and novel deals involving conventional power generation, transmission and distribution infrastructure, renewable energy (including offshore and onshore wind power as well as utility and distributed solar power), energy storage, nuclear power generation, and other traditional and evolving electric power technologies. 
  • Infrastructure: We represent sponsors, financial institutions, investment funds, developers, and government entities across the entire asset class, including transportation, digital, social, and energy infrastructure assets. We have supported our clients as the definition of infrastructure broadens and is redefined, and provide tailored advice to help clients achieve their objectives and deliver on their business plans. 

Latham Energy & Infrastructure lawyers leverage the complementary insights of a deep bench of lawyers in our regulatory, environment, tax, and other related practices, combining first-rate technical knowledge with a sophisticated understanding of the energy and infrastructure sectors. 

Our collective perspective uniquely positions us to help clients not only with the current issues they face, but also the future opportunities and challenges that will arise from a transition to a lower-carbon environment and the transformation of infrastructure across the globe.
