“Some years ago, I had the chance to work with Uisdean very intensively over an extended period in connection with a complex farmout of acreage located in the Senegal/Guinea-Bissau joint development zone. Ultimately four private oil companies were involved with widely divergent interests as well as the state regulatory authority. Uisdean and his team provided us with excellent representation. His legal ability and complementary understanding of the upstream oil business were most impressive”Thor Magnus Rovik, CEO, Rovikep AS
“I have been working with Uisdean on deals for over 15 years. We have done things like an AIM flotation of a UKCS new entrant, the financing of a Farmout arrangement onshore California, an asset acquisition in Azerbaijan and others. Most recently, we have been working on two UKCS deals, one for gas in the Southern North Sea and another for oil in the Central North Sea. I regard Uisdean as being a superb oil and gas lawyer, who is prompt, commercial and who really understands his industry. He is the best oil and gas lawyer that I have come across”Zac Phillips, CEO, Oil & Gas Advisors Limited
