Back to contents.


Our Energy and Natural Resources Group is global in reach and scope. Our team of over 160 lawyers works across our global network, advising businesses engaged in the extraction, production, distribution or financing of energy and natural resources, and in related projects, products and services. Combining regulatory, transactional and litigation disciplines, we represent many of the world’s largest players in this market. We are involved in commodities, power, oil and gas, nuclear energy, mining, metals and minerals, and renewable and clean-tech energy – which means graduates have the opportunity to work with some of the most innovative companies in the world. What sets us apart is the time we dedicate to the sector. Ranked by leading legal directories as a Band 1 practice, our lawyers work day in, day out to maintain our position as a market leader.

What do you do? I am an environmental, health and safety lawyer sitting within the Energy and Natural Resources group. My team covers a range of topics including pollution liability, land remediation, health and safety, chemicals, products regulation, product liability, food safety, producer responsibility and waste management. I am fortunate to get interesting matters across my desk every day, and the work feels very tangible, especially when you see products you have advised on being sold. How would you describe your group? ENR is a friendly and approachable group. There are a variety of specialists within the group, designed to best serve the sector, which leads to opportunities to work with a wide variety of colleagues. People are keen on the social side as well, with a group usually willing to have lunch in the canteen or go for a drink after work. What would appeal to a graduate joining your group? The immense breadth of work and opportunities you’re exposed to within the department. Because of the structure of the group, you get involved with matters that are fundamental to the global energy and commodities industry – such as financing, financial regulation and environmental, health and safety.

What sets us apart is the time we dedicate to the sector.
