White & Case LLP ensures ‘that the client understands not only the legal but the commercial aspects of a transaction’. Fielding a team of practitioners who offer in-depth knowledge of the global energy industry and the regulatory environment, the team is well placed to handle both transactional matters and disputes. Philip Stopford and Mark Clarke co-head the practice; Stopford has over 40 years’ experience in high-profile oil and gas deals; and Clarke handles disputes, with a focus on large international commercial arbitrations. David Baker is a name for upstream transactions, while Jason Kerr handles international project finance mandates, and has particular experience of emerging markets. Katie Hicks joined from Shearman & Sterling LLP in April 2021 and George Kazakov joined from an in-house role at Morgan Stangley in August 2021; the team was further bolstered by the arrival of David Lewis from Clifford Chance LLP in January 2022. Tom Bartlett left for Latham & Watkins in August 2021.
