Energy

The scope of our energy practice, both regionally and nationally, provides clients with an experienced, results-oriented industry team that brings to bear its understanding of regulatory, business, technical, and political issues as well as knowledge of opposition tactics.

Overview

Nearly every aspect of the American way of life depends on access to economic, efficient energy sources. Our nation’s economy and security interests increasingly demand that these sources be both reliable and safe. The energy sector is rapidly changing, not only in terms of how power is generated and transmitted, but also in selecting power sources to use. A deep understanding of this dynamic situation is necessary to effectively represent clients in this industry.

Our multi-disciplinary team represents clients in nearly every facet of the energy industry and understands the regulatory, operational, and business challenges unique to the following sectors:

  • Renewable Energy
  • Electric Power
  • Energy Markets
  • Linear Infrastructure
  • Oil & Gas

The scope of our energy practice, both regionally and nationally, provides clients with an experienced, results-oriented industry team that brings to bear its understanding of regulatory, business, technical, and political issues as well as knowledge of opposition tactics. We assist energy clients with matters involving state and federal regulations, environmental and corporate issues, project development, siting, eminent domain, real property tax, mergers and acquisitions, financing, real estate, land use, litigation, tax, and governmental affairs.

The service we provide our energy clients has been ranked multiple times by Chambers USA, with Barclay Damon's energy team ranking among the top energy practices in New York State in the current edition.
