Haynes and Boone, LLP entered the London market in 2016 by merging with Curtis Davis Garrard LLP (CDG) and is known as Haynes and Boone CDG, LLP in London.
Founded in 1996, CDG built a significant reputation serving the shipbuilding and offshore oil and gas sectors globally. Ship building clients consist of shipowners, charterers and shipyards covering the entire spectrum of commercial shipping including the international superyacht sector. On the offshore side, clients include major oil and gas companies with worldwide development interests, smaller independents, offshore contractors providing a range of exploration and production services, and specialist suppliers of oilfield services and equipment, including shipyards.
The office provides clients with substantially enhanced English law capabilities, including an experienced litigation and international arbitration team that has handled numerous claims in the English High Court and before major arbitral bodies.
The office also includes partners with decades of experience handling international business transactions, providing clients with an important and unique bridge between interconnected energy and energy finance related markets of London, New York, Houston, Shanghai, and Mexico City. The firm’s deep relationships and capabilities in this sector provide our clients with an unprecedented ability to make direct connections and access resources in some of the world’s largest energy markets.
