Rooted in the European oil and gas industry, with experience dating back to the 1970s and drawing on the firm’s network of specialists, our team has extensive experience in advising on energy sector transactions and operations.

With our origins in north east Scotland, Ledingham Chalmers offers an expert team rooted in the European oil and gas exploration and production sector.

For over 30 years, we have advised operators, service providers, supply chain contractors, financiers or advisers engaged in the exploration and production of oil and gas resources.

Our team has extensive experience in energy sector transactions (mergers, acquisitions and disposals of companies and businesses) and operations (contract negotiation, preparation, review and dispute resolution).

Our oil and gas practice has recently been enhanced by the return of head of oil and gas Uisdean Vass to the Ledingham Chalmers team.

We regularly advise on international policy, practice and regulation including production-sharing projects in the Central Asia region.
