Energy & Utilities

Today's energy and utility corporations face intense market and competitive pressures: Strong leadership is the driving force that shapes the successful company.

Continued industry consolidation and business globalization requires corporations to be proactive in capitalizing on new market opportunities. Commodity price volatility; government deregulation and asset privatization in a climate of consumer and public scrutiny are all key factors that have to be faced. Managing these issues is paramount to building shareholder value.

We succeed by combining global presence in 30 countries, in-depth industry knowledge, functional expertise and a consultative approach to deliver unique solutions. We differentiate ourselves by forming responsive, cross-border project teams. These teams match our practice professionals' expertise with those of the client.
