Energy Environmental

We work with our clients to ensure that their energy operations are environmentally sound, allowing them to operate effectively, profitably, and competitively in the global marketplace.

Our lawyers advise on environmental, health, and safety issues in connection with all types of energy projects and on others, including oil and gas production, transportation, and storage facilities, petrochemical plants, power plants, and renewable energy facilities.

Our lawyers also advise energy companies on environmental legislation and rulemaking issues, compliance, government enforcement actions, and cost recovery claims. We have conducted due diligence for hundreds of energy-related transactions worldwide.

In addition, we help clients develop practical solutions to the challenges created by global climate change. We advise on environmental attributes and "green tag" trading under various U.S. state renewable portfolio standards, as well as developing international infrastructure for the regulation of greenhouse gases, including the Kyoto Protocol and the U.K. and EU emissions trading schemes.
