Practice/Industry Group Overview
The issues facing businesses in today’s energy sector are complex – and so are the legal matters.
At Nexsen Pruet, we have the backgrounds and capabilities necessary to help energy companies maximize the opportunities and minimize the risks confronting the industry. With real-world experience and extensive technical and legal abilities, our attorneys employ practical, problem-solving strategies for cooperative organizations, public and private entities, and financial institutions providing capital and services to energy-related initiatives.
We stay at the forefront of emerging issues and trends and have established a proven track record at the state, local, and federal levels.
Far-Reaching Capabilities Across a Broad Range of Issues
Although our attorneys have an extensive depth of knowledge in a full spectrum of matters, we focus a significant amount of attention counseling clients in issues related to environmental, natural resources, agricultural, governmental, land use sale, and economic development law. We are particularly well-versed in electric cooperative law, advising clients in electric-service rights, eminent domain, pole attachments, easements, service/contract litigation and regulation.
Our capabilities include:
- General corporate and bylaw issues
- Territorial disputes
- Environmental issues
- Easements, real estate, and condemnation
- Electro-magnetic field litigation
- Personal injury, wrongful death, and property damage
- Wrongful disconnection of electric service
- Electric meter tampering
- Class action defense
- Service policy issues
- Capital credit issues
- Cooperative financing
We represent cooperative organizations, public and private entities, and financial institutions providing capital and services to energy projects/industries.
Economic development is also a key component within our Energy Practice Group. As a strong advocate for economic development, we work closely with site selectors and our local community partners throughout the southeast to recruit, retain and expand businesses of all sizes. Our commitment to serving our clients earned Nexsen Pruet accolades in Southern Business and Development magazine as one of the “Best Economic Development Service Providers in the South” in its 2009 "Trade Allies" directory.
