Results through empowered advocacy.

Our team offers the full array of transactional, regulatory and litigation services to clients spanning every segment of the energy space, from the extraction of fuel sources, to power generation and waste mitigation, to distribution and retail delivery. Clients turn to us for experienced guidance at each unique phase of project development. We assist energy companies in the execution of sophisticated financing, tax, fuel, siting, land use, and joint venture transactions, as well as in the maintenance and commercialization of their intellectual property and trade secret assets.

We also represent energy industry participants in complex environmental and commercial litigation, along with a variety of permitting, enforcement and regulatory proceedings before state and federal agencies. Most important, we have the critical mass to not only handle quick-turnaround due diligence projects but place experienced attorneys in the data room on short notice.
