Energy & Resources

Greenwoods & Herbert Smith Freehills advises energy and resources clients on critical tax issues specific to their ever-changing sector.

Our clients turn to us for revenue law advice on day-to-day operational expenditure, as well as issues arising from transactions that involve mergers and acquisitions, buybacks, capital raisings and financing.

For more than a decade, we have advised major corporations on the transactions shaping Australia’s energy and resources sector. Notably, in 2009–10, we acted for BHP Billiton on its proposed joint venture with Rio Tinto, the largest-ever proposed deal involving an Australian company. More recently, we advised a major petroleum company on a proposed share buyback.
