Reza Dadbakhsh - Herbert Smith Freehills LLP

Within: Oil and gas

Herbert Smith Freehills LLP's client base includes supermajors, independents, financial buyers, traders, Asian corporates and banks. The oil and gas team, led by Lewis McDonald, who recently relocated from the Tokyo office, handles corporate, finance and specialist work. The team also has an impressive contentious offering; James Baily has expertise in cross-border and gas and LNG price review disputes, among other areas. In recent highlights, the group acted for BP in a multibillion-dollar inter-conditional UK-Alaska transaction between the client and ConocoPhillips, which constitutes one of the first such international transactions between two global energy majors in the past 20 years. Other key contacts include Reza Dadbakhsh, who handles M&A, cross-border transactions and entries into mature and emerging markets. Stephen Murray retired from the profession.
