As our nation’s energy needs mature and efforts to promote energy security through domestic production increase, the U.S. oil and gas industry is experiencing a period of rapid growth. Such development is readily apparent in the Marcellus and Utica Shale plays in Ohio and surrounding regions. Businesses looking to launch or expand operations in this area must anticipate and address legal factors and potential risks to evaluate opportunities related to the production and transportation of energy resources. Porter Wright has the experience and knowhow to help in these efforts.
We work with companies involved in energy production, distribution and transportation, and our attorneys have developed a proficiency in the many areas of law associated with the oil and gas industry, including those affecting producers, transporters and ancillary businesses supporting the industry. We represent some of the largest energy producers, shippers and other industry-related businesses, advising them on day-to-day operational, governance, employment, financing, real property and contracting issues; providing guidance on complex transactions; navigating a unique regulatory environment and advocating their interests in litigation. Working closely with clients to understand their specific business approach and position, we help to create workable, cost-effective solutions for our clients.
