Energy industry magazine Petroleum Economist has named global law firm White & Case LLP "Legal Services Provider of the Year" at its 2019 Petroleum Economist Awards in London on November 19.
The award recognizes the law firm "whose expertise and involvement consistently delivers measurable value to its client(s)," according to the magazine. White & Case received the honor for the firm's close involvement in a range of energy sector deals, strategic input into clients' business decisions, significant expertise in the energy sector or a niche thereof and an innovative approach to tackling business challenges.
"White & Case stands out in the energy sector for the breadth of its services and the depth of its expertise," reports Petroleum Economist. "Its offering stretches from the headline-grabbing mega-deals to the minutiae of a highly complex and regulation-heavy industry…. Its team is truly impressive in its strategic global reach and its many decades of experience."
White & Case was also an honoree for its work advising Energean Oil & Gas plc on the transaction named by Petroleum Economist as "M&A Deal of the Year: Energean Oil & Gas plc's transformative acquisition of the exploration & production assets of Edison Exploration & Production S.p.A". The award recognizes a highly value-accretive transaction that delivers substantial strategic advantage to the acquiring firm or merging entities.
