Practice/Industry Group Overview

Our Energy Practice delivers the combined legal experience of a multi-disciplinary team of lawyers together with an in-depth understanding of the commercial and technical aspects of the energy industry to bring transactions, regulatory proceedings, and disputes to successful completion.

Our lawyers understand both the traditional principles and evolving trends that apply to established and emerging energy industry participants, which allows us to help our clients stay in front of (rather than just reacting to) the changes, small and large, that face the industry.

We advise the full spectrum of energy-related clients — governments and national energy companies; electric and gas independents and utilities; oil, gas, and mineral producers; pipeline, processing and distribution companies; electric transmission companies; developers and owners of wind power and other renewable energy sources; BTU conversion developers; services, construction, engineering, and environmental firms; companies trading electricity, natural gas, financial instruments, and emissions; and financial institutions providing capital and related services to these industries.
