And for good reason. We were pioneers in the field and achieved many “firsts” on behalf of our clients along the way. Our practice is recognized as preeminent, and we count among our partners 44 of the highest ranked international arbitration practitioners in the world.

Energy Disputes

Successfully navigating the global energy market requires advice from lawyers who have in-depth knowledge of the global energy industry, regulatory environment, relevant stakeholders and local markets. White & Case has been a trusted adviser to energy industry clients on a global basis for more than 60 years.

With energy lawyers in key locations worldwide, we have a market-leading energy disputes practice and provide a full range of services across the entire energy value chain. We also provide a full range of services across all energy transition asset classes, and have significant experience in energy transition technologies and sustainability with respect to investments, including energy/climate-related litigation. We also support clients on decarbonizing operations, guide them on the retirement of coal-fired power projects for transition to cleaner energy sources, help with the diversification and monetization of fossil fuel assets, and successfully advise on climate change litigation.

 Climate Change

White & Case handles some of the world’s largest and most complex climate change, energy transition, corporate social responsibility and human rights issues. The global nature of our Firm and practices, as well as the integrated and interactive structure of our teams, allows us to exchange and learn from experiences across jurisdictions, and identify and help our clients adapt to changing market conditions and trends. This gives us a distinct advantage over local firms.

Our global Climate Change Working Group was officially formed in 2019 to better serve our clients as it relates to their increasing climate change needs, as well as to coordinate internal efforts across a number of White & Case practice areas. In climate change matters, where many different and complex issues arise, cutting across various legal areas, we have a deep breadth of expertise and experience. Our advisory mandates include advising energy companies, multinational groups, and States, on devising a strategy in the face of increased climate change risks and obligations to reduce greenhouse emissions.
