Burness Paull & Williamsons to Build International Client Base at OTC

Burness Paull & Williamsons LLP continues to build its international client base by attending the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) in Houston.

Paull & Williamsons were pioneers of professional companies attending OTC, sending representatives to the show for more than 20 years. Following last year's merger, Burness Paull & Williamsons' chairman Philip Rodney says the firm's market offering is now even better placed to service its growing international client base.

Philip said: "Paull & Williamsons dominated the Aberdeen market for 40 years, with a leading oil and gas practice and a client list including many high profile clients in the sector. As Burness Paull & Williamsons we have built on that pre-eminent expertise and sector knowledge.

"The creation of the new firm means we have increased specialist knowledge and scale; we are one of Scotland's largest firms and offer enhanced services such as capital markets and pensions."

Burness Paull & Williamsons will send a team of five this year, representing specialisms including corporate finance, employment and private equity. The firm will once again host its annual cocktail party on 7 May, an event which has been a highlight of the OTC calendar for over a decade.

Partner Ken Gordon said: "OTC represents a great opportunity to introduce our new market leading offering to the international oil and gas community and to meet up with a number of our Houston headquartered clients.

"The team will also meet intermediaries and Houston-based law firms to discuss our new, more comprehensive offering and recent legal developments and opportunities in the offshore energy sector."

Ken is attending this year's conference along with partners Scott Allan, Tricia Walker and Tony Byrne and business development manager Victoria Grozier.

Burness Paull & Williamsons operates across a range of key sectors including oil and gas, offering a full range of legal services in exploration and production, corporate finance, health and safety, commercial, dispute resolution, employment, pensions and property.
