The transition and decarbonization of energy systems and sectors is underway, requiring the re-allocation of capital and labor on a global scale. More than ever, clients need to make informed, fact-based decisions based on rigorous analysis. We are not generalists – our focus is energy infrastructure, and we routinely work with the world’s leading corporations, investors, law firms, and regulators.

In addition, we advise our clients on transactions, and transform operating models to help maximize the value of their assets. We further provide expert witness support in civil litigation, regulatory matters, and international arbitration.
