Legal Services Provider of the Year, 2016: King & Spalding LLP

King & Spalding’s energy clients turn to them for a broad range of business and legal advice to help them make major innovations and reach significant milestones.

The firm has devised strategies for clients constructing major LNG export and petrochemical projects that have achieved the optimum price and contract structure to allow the projects - which otherwise might have stalled or been abandoned, given the current low-price oil and gas environment.

This has included advising clients on the project structure, procurement and bidding process in order to produce maximum leverage to owners in their negotiations with contractors. As a result, clients have achieved significantly lower pricing on their projects than comparable ventures (in some cases exceeding $1bn), with better contractual terms that will not only reduce the initial price for their project, but also mitigate potential change orders and claims during construction.

Of note, the company worked on Anadarko’s Mozambique liquefied natural export project – the largest of its kind under development worldwide.

The firm is operational in more than 90 countries across the globe, with significant experience in working with a number of different stakeholders – from governments to investors and consumers. King & Spalding’s reputation has grown with its multitude of success stories over the course of the last year.
