Focus and Precision Matter
Energy is no more a single area of law than it is a single industry. Onshore and offshore oil, traditional and nontraditional gas , coal , pipelines, power generation and distribution, refineries, services: these “energy” industries have at least as many differences as commonalities.
In today’s reality, it’s not enough for a law firm to say, “We have a team of energy-focused attorneys.” Many firms can say that. But if you are a pipeline company, you need attorneys who know pipeline issues from one end to the other. If you mine coal , your attorneys should help you prepare for market changes and new environmental laws. If you explore for shale gas, state and local hurdles are everywhere. Specific knowledge and experience are what counts.

At the same time, these industries all face the business challenges of financing, operational management, regulatory compliance, environmental issues, dispute resolution (and prevention) and more. Mergers , tax management and disputes, labor & employment matters, intellectual property protection, and cybersecurity affect every type of energy business. That’s where depth is critical. We staff your matter with attorneys whose experience is directly relevant both to your specific business and to the type of legal solution you need. You need precision, not generalists.
