Oil, Gas & Fracking Overview

In the energy industry, perhaps more so than any other field in the global economy, technologies quickly evolve, regulations change and markets move, requiring a constant balancing of opportunities, costs and potential risks. Our attorneys have developed an in-depth understanding of the energy industry through decades of representing many of its largest and most diverse companies in commercial and environmental disputes throughout the United States. The group’s attorneys are particularly experienced in representing clients in litigation arising from the production and distribution of oil and gas in established sectors as well as emerging technologies, such as hydraulic fracturing or “fracking.”
