The Davis LLP Energy Law Group advises and represents energy producers, distributors and utilities, and their stakeholders such as suppliers and special interest groups. We have broad experience in the oil and gas and power generation sectors and the energy industry generally, including renewable energy, from the development and financing of projects to the regulation of the industry sectors.
We work with major oil and natural gas producers and distributors in all aspects of business, from exploration to retail. We work extensively with major utilities on a range of matters, such as the sale of subsidiaries and assets, advice regarding infrastructure upgrades and additions, rate change applications and the negotiations and approvals required for the sale of energy.
We advise and represent on utility matters, including tariffs, facilities and transactions, and advise on regulatory regimes and trade matters, and environmental and Aboriginal matters. We also assist energy-related companies with initial public offerings, Canadian and foreign stock exchange listings and financings. We also work with lenders to major energy projects.
Comprised of lawyers from several of our legal disciplines, the Davis Energy Law Group is active across British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, the Yukon and Northwest Territories and Nunavut.
Oil & Gas
Davis LLP has significant expertise in international oil and gas practice, including advising oil and gas producers operating in Europe, Asia and South America on all aspects of petroleum extraction and production.
As global concern for climate change mounts, the advent of regulating and reducing the amount of pollution emitted into the atmosphere makes renewable energy options ideal. Members of our Energy Law Group work with crown corporations, corporations and independent power producers that harness renewable energy for consumers through water, wind, solar, geothermal, biofuel and biomass resources.
Davis LLP has the leading electricity regulatory practice in Canada. Focusing on regulatory law, our lawyers advise on acquisitions and dispositions, facilities approvals and tariff matters for both utilities and utility customers.
