Energy & Resources

Underpinning Australia's economy and riding a new wave of international investment, the Australian energy and resources sector has emerged from the global financial crisis into a significant period of growth and activity. With these renewed opportunities come new challenges. Getting quality legal advice has never been more critical.

Piper Alderman is recognised in Australia as a leading legal advisor to the energy and resources sector. Our clients operate across the full range of areas within the industry – from oil, gas and minerals to renewables such as wind and wave – throughout Australia and across the globe.

Our experience has been built from many years working on some of the region's most significant and often pioneering projects. This track record enables our national team to provide our clients with legal services which take into account the unique risks and rewards of the sector, offering advice on corporate and commercial transactions, licensing, regulatory, employment, environmental, native title and dispute resolution.

Piper Alderman's consulting arm, ResourcesLaw International, also specialises in the energy and natural resources industries. The firm has been involved in many groundbreaking projects in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region and is closely associated with the Energy Policy Institute of Australia and the APEC Energy Trade and Investment Task Force.
