Fieldfisher ranked in top three AIM oil & gas legal advisers

Firm jumps three places to become the third largest legal adviser to AIM-listed oil & gas companies by number of clients and is the top law firm by client market cap in this sector.

European law firm Fieldfisher has been ranked as the third largest adviser to oil & gas clients on London's AIM market, according to the latest quarterly AIM Adviser Rankings Guide, published today.

The firm has gained two AIM-listed oil & gas clients since July, taking the number of companies it advises on the London Stock Exchange's junior tier to seven.

Fieldfisher is also the largest legal adviser to oil & gas companies on AIM by total client market cap, which stands at £1.488 billion.

Overall, the firm is now the fourth largest adviser to AIM-listed companies across all sectors, up from sixth in July.

Fieldfisher's increasingly strong presence in oil & gas is testimony to the depth of the firm's experience in this sector, as part of its strategic focus on the wider energy industry.

Its growing dominance among AIM-listed businesses demonstrates that Fieldfisher's reputation as an entrepreneurial and commercially-minded firm continues to spread, with clients coming to and remaining with us as they work to achieve their corporate goals.

Commenting on the latest league tables, partner Stuart Carter, head of Fieldfisher's oil & gas team said: "The demands of oil and gas clients continue to evolve and corporate activity in this area remains on an upward trend.

"It is rewarding to witness, through our improved ranking, that the firm's breadth and depth of oil and gas expertise, across corporate, commercial, finance and security, is increasingly well-recognised among companies in this sector."

Partner Neil Matthews, head of Fieldfisher's equity capital markets team, said: "Our AIM practice goes from strength to strength, based on our deserved reputation for providing a first class service to our clients and a team renowned for both its capital markets expertise and its focus on the most successful and active sectors on AIM.

"Our expertise in oil and gas has allowed us to secure an increasing number of high-quality mandates on a variety of AIM transactions from new and existing AIM-listed companies, as well as banks and brokers operating in this sector, and is reflected in the calibre of clients we work with."
