Energy - Oil & Gas

Our oil and gas lawyers leverage their local expertise and international relationships to help clients accomplish their goals in an ever-changing economic and regulatory climate. Highly experienced in a broad array of oil and gas transactions and disputes, we provide practical, strategic and tactical advice.

Stikeman Elliott lawyers have closed some of the toughest and most contentious deals in the Canadian oil and gas sector, for many of the highest profile and most sophisticated investors. Our lawyers understand how changing regulatory frameworks, fluctuating commodity prices and unpredictable global economic trends impact our clients’ businesses. We provide legal solutions that anticipate issues arising from the cyclical nature of the oil and gas industry.

Stikeman Elliott has strong relationships with key policy and decision-makers in the highly regulated oil and gas industry. We represent clients before the Canada Energy Regulator (CER) (formerly the National Energy Board), the Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) and other federal and provincial regulatory authorities, as well as Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada and the Competition Bureau.
