The Energy & Natural Resources Industry Group is multidisciplinary, combining regulatory, transactional and litigation disciplines. Its members are located in all of Reed Smith's offices in the UK, the United States, Europe, the Middle East and Asia, providing an exceptional global platform for businesses engaged in the extraction, production, distribution or financing of energy and natural resources projects, products and services anywhere in the world. The combined experience of the group is a resource for clients who are developers, producers, manufacturers, traders, financiers and investors, insurers, and transporters in the energy and natural resources sectors, whether they are involved in the more traditional resources, such as oil, gas, nuclear, metals and minerals, or in renewable and clean energy.
The continuing demand for energy and natural resources globally, driven by rapidly expanding Asian economies, ongoing demand in the United States, and the recognition that many natural resources are finite, has created an exploding market and a special focus on renewable energy resources.
The ENR Group also has considerable strength providing transactional, litigation and regulatory support for businesses navigating the complex environmental aspects of conducting business in the ENR sector. Our lawyers are experienced in anticipating and managing the health, safety and liability issues that may arise in pursuing the profitable commercialization of energy and natural resource projects.
