We handle matters involving crude oil and natural gas producers, service companies, gas marketers, large and small energy consumers, alternative energy producers such as wind farms and biomass and ethanol facilities, and independent electric power producers and marketers. Whether you are an energy-providing business or a consumer dealing with energy issues, we provide strong advocacy and advice geared to resolving your legal problem.
Experienced litigators handle a wide range of energy law cases
Our attorneys represent clients in state and federal courts, administrative proceedings and arbitrations involving energy issues. We have extensive experience litigating disputes involving:
- Electric deregulation

- Gas purchase contracts
- Personal injury and wrongful death claims
- Products liability issues
In addition, we represent oil and gas clients in lien and collection matters, reorganizations, receiverships and bankruptcies.
Proven advocates support clients in courts and before commissions
We practice extensively before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, state utility commissions, the Department of Transportation, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, and state and federal courts. We also engage in formal and informal alternative dispute resolution. We represent clients in administrative and judicial proceedings involving a wide range of electric issues, including regulated cost allocations and transmission rate design, challenges to market-based rate authority, mergers and acquisitions, NERC compliance and enforcement, and administrative rule-making proceedings. Our familiarity with all of these proceedings enables us to provide clients with the industry-specific counsel they require.
Knowledgeable counselors advise on oil, gas and renewable energy matters
Our natural gas practice encompasses nearly every aspect of the natural gas industry. We negotiate and enforce gas purchase and transportation contracts and represent clients before the FERC on matters involving transportation rates, rule-makings, NGA Sec. 5 complaints, contract enforcement, and pipeline certificate and tariff issues.
The firm's hydroelectric and renewable energy practices include projects involving water, solar, wind, biomass and geothermal resources. Clients rely on us to help them plan, evaluate, site, permit and develop renewable energy projects across the nation. We negotiate interconnection agreements, joint ownership and development agreements, project operation agreements, purchase and sale agreements, and rights to renewable energy credits. While our background representing clients in these industries enables us to provide informed counsel, we will also consult with specific industry experts to assist us whenever necessary.
