From October 13-15, 2010, three Pittsburgh attorneys from Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney's Marcellus Shale/Oil and Gas Group will participate in the 35th Kentucky Mineral Law Conference, presented by the Energy & Mineral Law Foundation (EMLF) — a non-profit educational organization providing information on legal issues related to the energy and mineral industry through workshops, specialty programs, publications and electronic information. The three-day event will take place at the Marriott Griffin Gate Resort in Lexington, Kentucky.

On the first day of the conference, Charles L. Potter, Jr. will present as part of the event's "Oil & Gas Track." The presentation, titled "Emerging Trends in the Development of the Marcellus Shale," will cover practical considerations in planning for acquisitions and developing acreage in the Marcellus Shale, including joint ventures and other joint development and partnership arrangements. Additionally, they will cover organizational structure and choice of entity and related tax structuring, planning for operations post-closing including carried interests, farmouts and use of production payments and rights of participation, and the tax consequences of such interests.

Lastly, on the final day of the conference, David J. Laurent will join other industry professionals to present, "Pearls of Wisdom." For this presentation, practitioners will share insights gained from practicing energy and mineral law, covering a range of issues such as the etiquette of site visits, recognizing conflicts of interest, the importance of learning your client's business, working with in-house counsel, and other tips to help you succeed as a lawyer.
