Oil and Gas
We are ready to assist our clients every step of the way, from exploration, production and refining of oil to its transmission over pipelines.
Given the depth of our legal experience, we are well-versed in providing the pertinent legal advice as circumstances and legislation changes throughout the life of a mining project. Through our international network of contacts and resources we are able to provide you with the support system you desire at any phase of your venture.
Power Production
Our team has extensive experience in matters regarding power generation, transmission, and regulation. From the drafting and negotiation of energy-related contracts, we are pleased to serve our clients with personalized advice to best achieve their over-all objectives. We provide comprehensive legal advice to independent power producers, focusing on the business risks and limitations on technology associated with electricity projects.

We have also advised on the new scheme for feed-in tariffs and we are ready to advise energy suppliers on how to best capitalize on this new guaranteed minimum payment for each kWh exported to the energy grid.
Energy & Natural Resource Financing
We have extensive experience in the development, construction, and operation of both renewable and non-renewable energy resource projects. From wind and hydro to biomass and biofuels, we offer financing advice to our clients. At the heart of our project financial strategy is our due diligence process. We have shared best practices of project financing specific to energy projects with both lenders and borrowers.
Hydro, Solar & Wind
Because certain renewable energy facilities such as hydroelectric dams tend to outlast its amortization period, they present appealing investment opportunities. However, during the long lifespan of these projects come complex and changing legal challenges that we are ready to assist our clients with. From hydroelectric dams and solar (photovoltaic) power generation to wind-harnessing facilities, we are ready to provide the relevant legal input.
Biomass & Biofuels
Bioenergy, concerning both biomass and biofuels, is being highly promoted in Malaysia. From the conversion of biomass into charcoal to palm oil, biomass energy has been the target of many government production programs and incentives. We are primed to structure our clients’ short-term research and development strategies, along with their production and long-term growth plans according to these incentives. Our perceptiveness and knowledge of the bioenergy landscape makes us useful advisors to team up with.
Renewable Energy
At the forefront of the move away from dependence on oil and fossil fuel is the great promise shown by recent developments in renewable energy. With these opportunities come complex legal issues, and we are prepared to assist our clients' endeavours to meet the global demand for green energy alternatives by providing them with unparalleled client service for each phase of their project. We have advised on the Small Renewable Energy Power (SREP) Programme and Feed-in Tariff system which has now superceded the SREP Programme. We have also advised interested clients on issues related to the Renewable Energy Act 2011 ("REB") and the Sustainable Energy Development Authority Act 2011 ("SEDAB") .
