Our Energy professionals have provided independent expert analysis and testimony in international and domestic legal and regulatory disputes, such as international investment and commercial arbitrations, domestic arbitrations, litigations, regulatory and restructuring proceedings, antitrust disputes, mergers and acquisitions, and government inquiries. They have provided expert testimony on numerous disputes heard before ICSID, UNCITRAL, ICC, AAA/ICDR, LCIA, US federal, state, and district courts, the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), and US state utility commissions, among others.
