This area is one of Crestle Zanders’ strongest points. We draw from our lawyers’ deep knowledge of oil and gas and wider energy regulations and markets, to advise our clients with respect to their business objectives, whether it relates to the licensing, development, commercialization and disposal of assets, or production and marketing of products.
