The international energy industry frequently gives rise to complex, high-value disputes. As economic and commercial circumstances change, joint venture partners may disagree over operations, sellers and buyers may manoeuvre to amend pricing terms and states may seek to improve their take from investment projects. Any of these outcomes can have significant consequences for the long-term prospects of companies operating in the sector.

These are just some of the areas covered by this new title, which provides a practical, user-friendly overview of the essentials of dispute resolution in the energy industry. Leading practitioners from international law firms and global companies consider, among other things, the drafting of dispute resolution clauses, the effective use of international arbitration, the management of large-scale energy disputes, and the development of case law in oil and gas disputes, construction disputes, environmental disputes and disputes arising in the renewables and nuclear sectors.

Edited by Ronnie King, head of the arbitration team at international law firm Ashurst LLP, this title will be of practical value for all dispute resolution lawyers advising in the energy industry, and for others who have an interest in the important issues discussed.
