Natural Resources Law Practice:
Our Energy practice has several decades experience in advising clients on legal and tax issues that are broadly related to the production, trade, transportation and usage of energy.
We have divided our expertise into four teams in which specialists from different fields work closely together. The Exploration & Production team advises on all legal and tax aspects related to activities concerning oil and gas detection and production and substance storage. The International E&P structuring team focuses on structuring global activities that have to do with the detection and production of Dutch entities. Activities that concern the trade, transport and supply of gas, electricity and related products and services are the responsibility of the Network & Supply team. In cases where the activities have a direct bearing on sustainability, this is the domain of the attorneys and tax advisers working together in our NewEnergy team.
