Axiom for Industrials and Oil & Gas

Axiom matches world-class legal talent with the complex needs of industrials, energy, and oil & gas legal and compliance teams, empowering them to adapt quickly to market fluctuations and company priorities.

The challenge

Industrial, energy, and oil & gas companies are being heavily impacted by increased workflows, tighter budgets, and business disruptions from world health concerns and ever-evolving trade compliance issues, driving new levels of uncertainty and risk for the legal department.

Accessing the right talent is key to your success during times of increased risk and fluctuating work volume. Axiom supports automotive, chemicals, oil and gas, aerospace and defense, airlines, energy, raw materials, real estate and construction, and transportation clients.

When writing contracts I work with the client to help them figure out their priorities, what pitfalls they might face, and how they can make an informed business decision. There’s a legal role of advising with respect to risk, and a client function of deciding how much risk tolerance they have. You put it all together and it feels like solving the New York Times crossword puzzle.
