Oil& Gas

Our multi-disciplinary team understands the interrelationship of regulatory, business, technical, political, and stakeholder issues the industry faces and how to implement strategies essential in addressing these challenges to achieve our clients' goals.

Overview

Opposition to the use of oil and gas has escalated over the last decade and continues to increase as the industry seeks to develop, site, store, and transport these crucial energy sources. This tension has resulted in unique, evolving legal challenges arising on many different fronts and forums. Barclay Damon’s oil and gas attorneys have the knowledge and experience to assist clients in preparing for and overcoming these diverse and complex problems.
