Financial Advisory


Los Angeles, United States

Duncan Dickerson joined Lazard in 2016 as an Associate in the Global Energy Group, focused on providing advisory services to energy transition and upstream oil and gas companies. He is based in Lazard’s Los Angeles office.

Since joining the firm, Duncan has provided advisory services to large-cap companies as they navigate the energy transition and ClimateTech companies as they execute their growth objectives. He has executed over $10 billion in traditional and emerging energy transactions in M&A, activism defense, capital markets (public and private) and restructurings (in and out of court). He also provides “strategic advisory” services at Lazard specifically around evaluating strategic alternatives as companies decarbonize their business operations. Outside of Duncan’s traditional energy coverage, he was a core team member for Lazard Growth Acquisition I, a special purpose acquisition company with $575 million in trust, and is on several Lazard steering committees.

In philanthropy, Duncan has served Rice University as adjunct professor in the Jones Graduate School of Business since 2020, teaching classes in renewable energy finance and climatetech, was a premier member of the Houston chapter of the Rikers Debate Project, a non-profit focused on teaching competitive debate to incarcerated and formerly incarcerated people to give them a greater say in the decisions that affect their lives, and a Hermann Park Conservancy: Play Your Park committee member, successfully raising $2 million dollars for the construction of the McWilliams Dog Park.
