The ZOHDY LAW FIRM Energy and Natural Resources Group is a team of dedicated professionals that combine their skills, in-depth knowledge and experience to provide comprehensive counseling and strategic regulatory advice to public agencies, mining and energy generation and distribution companies, financial institutions and international agencies.
We have a profound understanding of the business needs of parties involved in the oil and gas, power generation, renewable and alternative energy, coal and iron ore mining and infrastructure sectors. Our oil and gas lawyers leverage their local expertise and international relationships to help clients accomplish their goals in an ever-changing economic and regulatory climate. Highly experienced in a broad array of oil and gas transactions and disputes, we provide practical, strategic and tactical advice.
We are familiar with the business realities that affect their clients. They are experienced with the operational details and points of negotiation in the contracts and physical operations that are common and also unique to oil and gas. They must alert clients to potential traps for the unwary in the law of their jurisdiction, navigate government regulations to accomplish their clients’ goals, and assemble transactions from the myriad property and operational issues that exist for each particular oil and gas prospect or producing property. For example, the mechanics and economics of the development of oil and gas versus hard minerals such as coal has led to dramatically different business structures and contracts to develop these fossil fuel resources.
Our lawyers provide bespoke legal services ranging from general consultation on regulatory requirements to advising on project development, from the structuring of project financing to the drafting and negotiation of contractor agreements for power generation and transportation facilities, to providing assistance in obtaining extraction licenses and concession rights, the drafting and negotiation of production sharing agreements, and making investment agreements with the state. This body of practice draws heavily from contract, property, and corporate law, but also has substantial overlap with environmental, tax, employment, administrative, and even tort law. The set of legal issues that confront, for example, a client wishing to organize a company to acquire and develop particular offshore or onshore oil and gas prospect, is unique. Therefore, the diversity and specificity of these issues led to the emergence of specialized oil and gas lawyers.
