Commodities, Oil & Gas, and Natural Resources Litigation

Disputes in the energy and commodities sector are increasing amid geopolitical volatility, competition in an economic climate of rapidly falling asset prices, and increased international regulation.

The Khan Partnership is experienced in advising on high value and complex disputes across multiple jurisdictions. With our international experience, industry knowledge, and network of connections, we advise on the diverse matters which arise in these sectors.

Oil and gas commodities and natural resources litigation are complicated and challenging areas of law. Cases often have hundreds of millions of pounds at stake. Our team has an excellent reputation for resolving disputes in the sector. We always try to settle issues at an early stage and through alternative dispute resolution (ADR) avenues, such as mediation or international arbitration.

If a settlement cannot be achieved, we are expert litigators who have successfully brought and defended numerous cases in the courts in the UK and elsewhere.

Our work in commodities regularly includes managing disputes throughout the international supply chain such as sale contracts, issues at port, damage of goods, quality/contamination of goods, bills of lading and the carriage of goods. We also have expertise in export licence controls.

The Khan Partnership’s commodities, natural resources, and oil and gas practices also advise on non-contentious matters and has extensive experience of projects upstream, midstream and downstream including production, processing and refining to trading, transmission and distribution link to commodities non-contentious work.
