Energy in Australia

Baker & McKenzie has one of Australia's largest dedicated energy and resources teams, with experience in all Australian jurisdictions. The depth of our energy practice allows us to advise on all facets of the energy industry including regulation, major project development and mergers and acquisitions. We have been trusted advisors to some of Australia's, and the globe's, leading power and petroleum companies. Through Baker & McKenzie's market-leading Clean Energy & Renewables Group we also advise our clients on carbon offsets and trades, as well as clean energy projects.

Our Group is closely involved with Baker& McKenzie's regional and global practice groups. The strength of this relationship allows us to bring global best practice to assist our clients in their Australian energy activities. This has been illustrated by our appointment in many of the major energy and resource transactions over the past decade.

Our practice sits within Baker & McKenzie's Corporate Group where our dedicated energy lawyers draw on the experience of experienced corporate, private equity, capital markets and environmental lawyers with significant energy clients. This broader experience ensures our clients receive high-quality legal advice.
