We have worked with clients in the offshore sector, including oil and gas and renewables, for decades. Over this time, we have built up a deep knowledge and understanding of the industry sector. As offshore operations grow in size and move further out to sea, our offshore shipping lawyers guide clients through the various risks and liabilities to be considered for projects in the sector – whether oil and gas, wind, walk-to-work, maintenance, or crew accommodation.
Working with our energy and natural resources team, we can advise on the full life cycle and aftermath of floating assets in the offshore oil, gas, and renewables sector ‒ whether that be the building, chartering, service contracting, management, selling, or decommissioning of an asset; litigation issues; or restructuring, debt financing, and sale and leaseback arrangements.
Our team has experience advising on bespoke vessels and the set-up of offshore wind operations, including advising on jurisdictional issues, such as the Jones Act, and industry-specific documents, such as WINDTIME and SUPPLYTIME.
