The energy sector is of prime, global importance and is highly regulated. A core common objective of nongovernmental entities is to improve the functioning of the sector and make energy and fuel consumption more efficient. As a result, energy companies and energy infrastructure are increasingly targeted by private enterprises through energy transactions. Dentons’ Energy Transactions team advises clients worldwide in major asset acquisitions, divestures, joint ventures and M&A deals across the energy spectrum, including: electricity, oil and gas, liquefied natural gas, renewable, coal and other forms of energy.
