Michelet & Co is a leading international law firm in the oil & gas, oilfield and maritime services industries.
We provide legal and commercial advice on the full range of offshore exploration and production activities, from field acquisition and development activities, to the construction employment and financing of oilfield services’ assets to oil & gas transportation. We also provide specialist advice in the more traditional maritime areas, covering both contentious and non-contentious issues, concerning shipbuilding, chartering, operational, ship management, brokering, bunkering, and ship sale and purchase.
Our combination of legal, commercial and strategic expertise and world wide experience sets us apart from other law firms. Experience is about more than being a good technical lawyer. It is about understanding the wider commercial risks and how to achieve our clients’ objectives. We know the risks inside out because we’ve seen them all first-hand, and we understand how the market works. We don’t shy away from commercial decisions: we always offer our opinion and we’re comfortable leading negotiations. That means we’re able to fit seamlessly into our clients’ team and cut straight to the heart of their negotiations or dispute.
We embrace the benefits of collaboration, and the sharing of know-how and “lessons learned”, both with our clients and across the industry. Team-work, dedication and mutual respect and trust are pivotal values in our culture. We operate under a true partnership model with no other interests than providing the best possible service to our clients.
We work wherever our clients are. We’re not limited by geography; we like to be at the table, not simply as partners but as influential members of our clients’ team.
Our clients come back to us again and again because we’re the experts in our field. Simply put, we offer more than the law.
