When it Comes to Energy, We’ve Got You Covered
Transactional work in the energy industries covers a lot of ground. Because of our energy attorneys’ deep understanding of the commercial, political and technical world in which you live, we are able to assist with your full scope of transactions. We offer practical guidance on your most important decisions. For example, we are able to counsel and represent you in:
- Business formation and dissolution.
- Mergers and acquisitions.
- Complex financing.
- Negotiation and drafting of contracts and agreements.
- Due diligence.
With more than $28 billion worth of shale-era transactions under our belt, we have earned the title of the “go-to” energy law firm for transactions in the Appalachian Basin, and our work with clients in the Colorado shale plays is quickly earning us a reputation there as well.
With new federal and state legislative initiatives and regulatory pressures coming at energy companies almost daily, you need experienced counsel to help you get through the maze. For example, we can assist you with compliance, permitting, investigations and litigation related to:
- State and federal environmental regulations and enforcement.
- Public Utility Commission.
- Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) regulations.
- Clean Power Plan.
- The Energy Policy Act.
- Labor/worker classification.
Because of the ever-changing environment in which energy businesses work, litigation against and among them is on the rise. In contract disputes, intellectual property matters, employment issues and environmental challenges, getting clear advice on areas of risk and how to avoid them is critical. You may also face increasing land use, zoning and municipal litigation.
When litigation can’t or shouldn’t be avoided, you need a firm that has resolved energy-related disputes in federal and state trial courts, in appellate courts at every level, in regulatory tribunals, and in arbitration and other forms of alternative dispute resolution. Our high-profile wins have positioned us as the go-to firm for national energy companies operating in the Marcellus and Utica shale plays and far beyond.
Because energy-related litigation may involve many areas of law, our energy litigators team up with attorneys in the firm whose focus may be finance, environmental, regulatory, tax, labor and employment, intellectual property, real estate, government relations or other areas. The result is that you get representation that considers every angle.
