In addition to our defence work, we also regularly carry out internal investigations and provide compliance reviews and advice to some of the world’s largest extractives companies, including those listed on the Fortune Global 500.
A number of our lawyers have also spent time seconded to leading extractives companies, and have significant experience acting in international arbitrations in relation to both oil and gas, and mining disputes, including those involving sovereign states.
Fulcrum acted for a downstream Oil & Gas company in parallel with ICC and UNCITRAL arbitrations relating to supply disputes under several gas sales agreements (combined claim value $200m).
Fulcrum Chambers is one of very few firms who have a real expertise in corporate white-collar defence and compliance processes. This comprehensive expertise allows them to provide a pragmatic, tailored advice to companies on compliance processes, as they are able to draw from their expertise in criminal defence.
