Phoebe Anderson is an associate on the Offshore Oil and Gas Practice Group at Haynes and Boone CDG. She joined the firm in April 2016 after beginning her legal career in Australia, where she represented clients in the offshore oil and gas sector and advised on general construction matters and commercial law.

Phoebe now focuses her practice on projects and contracts related to the offshore exploration and production of oil and gas in the UK Continental Shelf, Africa and other locations. Her practice range from projects involving the construction and employment of offshore drilling units (such as semi-submersible drilling units and drillships) to offshore production facilities (such as Floating Production Storage and Offload (FPSO) units). She also advises clients on potential contractual disputes in relation to the construction of drilling units and drilling services contracts. Phoebe has recently co-authored a legal briefing note on the interpretation of consequential loss exclusions clauses in offshore drilling contracts under English law.
