On March 3 CMS hosted a seminar on geopolitical and security risks facing the energy sector in our London offices. The seminar was part of Chambers & Partners’ GS seminar series and reflected on political and economic challenges energy companies face when entering new markets as well as on the cybersecurity threat that is much too real for strategically-important energy businesses. The talks highlighted some of the very real risks that energy companies are dealing with every day, and we are pleased to send you recordings of each of the sessions so you can watch them if you were unable to join us on the day. 

Bob Palmer, Head of the Energy, Projects and Construction practice at CMS UK, also focused on the geopolitical issues facing energy companies. He discusses the role of the legal advisor in the complex considerations and interactions involved in entering a new market, using real examples to highlight difficult transitions or situations organisations have dealt with.
