Energy & Natural Resources

The Energy and Natural Resources industries are evolving quickly and are among the most critical to global development. The ongoing demand in the United States, United Kingdom and the European Union as well as the reality that natural resources are finite has shifted the industry's focus beyond the existing fossil fuel infrastructure to renewable energy resources and created new opportunities in the market. The U.S. decision to allow oil exports and OPEC's increased production combine to make the energy business both dynamic and volatile. Collectively, these forces are increasing the demand for skilled lawyers whose knowledge and skills extend beyond the legal department.
