Stuart is a partner in the firm’s Energy practice. He joined in 2010 from another leading international law firm.

Stuart specialises in all kinds of energy related work – upstream, LNG, petrochemicals, gas transportation and power. He has worked on matters in Latin America, Europe, Africa and Asia and has previously been based in London, Vietnam, Singapore, India (where he spent three years as in-house counsel to BG Group) and Qatar.

Stuart has over 15 years’ experience in the energy sector. At his previous firm, Stuart was recommended for Corporate/M&A work by PLC Which Lawyer? (“Best regarded for his regional work in the oil and gas sector, including advising on relevant commercial agreements and greenfield projects”) and noted by Legal 500 for his work on energy and infrastructure matters.

Stuart is a member of the Association of International Petroleum Negotiators (AIPN) and sits on several of its committees responsible for drafting industry standard documentation.

Volatile oil prices and the depletion of traditional hydrocarbon energy sources have made an already competitive industry even more complex. At the same time energy suppliers provide essential public services, and political pressures add another layer of complexity, as governments and regulators seek energy security and demand both price stability and cleaner energy supplies.

In a market that is fast-changing and under pressure from a variety of different directions, you need a firm that is immersed in energy markets and is innovative and agile in driving and achieving your business goals. Dentons gives you that support, with enormous experience across the energy sector and around the world. This includes providing strategic assistance to clients encompassing the entire energy value chain from oil majors, independents, transportation companies, power generators and utilities, financial institutions and large customers. Dentons lawyers work for more than 40 governments on energy-market reform and major project procurement, which adds a depth of perspective rare amongst law firms.

Use Dentons and work with lawyers who understand the energy industry—who see the opportunities within traditional sectors and within new technologies—and who can help shape the business you want. Upstream or downstream, from exploration to marketing, and from generation to retail, Dentons can give you the innovative advice and insight you need globally.
