Annual Review 2019

White & Case doubles down on industry knowledge

A global professional development program highlights our industry-centered approach

To best serve our clients, we bring a deep understanding of their industries to each matter. One way we do this is through internal training, which builds industry expertise across practices and geographies. In 2019, we launched our global Oil & Gas Academy to help ensure that experienced lawyers stay up to date on developments in the sector, newer practitioners build industry expertise and lawyers across practice areas are knowledgeable about oil & gas issues.

The program’s monthly sessions address issues including oil & gas development, M&A and disputes across the oil & gas value chain. Led by the Firm’s oil & gas professionals, these practical, business-focused trainings feature case studies that explore a range of realworld situations. Attendees from more than 30 White & Case offices around the globe registered for the first session, Key Trends in Oil & Gas, held in October 2019. This program provides an overview of the industry’s key role in the world economy and within the Firm.

We offer each 1.5 hour session twice to accommodate different time zones. Sessions are recorded and available on the Firm’s intranet, further expanding their reach. In addition, we will share relevant Oil & Gas Academy material with clients.

The Oil & Gas Academy builds on our 60-plus years of oil & gas industry experience and demonstrates our commitment to the sector. It helps ensure our ongoing ability to provide borderless counsel to an industry that knows no geographic boundaries, and reflects our continued focus on our clients’ businesses.
