Assisting Clients with Various Types of Energy Law Cases
The energy sector has the largest single impact on the world economy. As a result, oil and gas companies often place their financial interests above the health, environmental, and economic interests of the workers, royalty owners, surrounding landowners and public at large. Navigating energy-related accidents and disputes requires a vigorous and experienced knowledge of the intricate details of the energy sector.
Our experience includes business counseling and extensive litigation of a wide variety of energy law and oil-and-gas-related litigation, including oil field accidents, patent disputes, royalty litigation, overriding royalty ownership, and Mineral and Royalty Ownership Rights litigation.
Areas of Energy Laws & Regulation
Below are some of the areas of energy law regulation in which our lawyers are well versed. Whether it’s a transactional or litigation need, or legal advice on a regulatory resolution that is required, Potts Law Firm has the relevant know-how to assist.
The nuclear fuel cycle involves everyone from design and technology companies to engineers, nuclear reactor vendors, insurers, nuclear site operators, and any other businesses involved in the mining and enrichment of nuclear energy.
Whether you’re an owner or a lawyer, high-stakes lawsuits do arise. Ironically, a nuclear verdict in the legal world is one in favor of the plaintiff where the damages awarded exceed $10 million. While it’s not strictly related to nuclear energy, with all the industry players involved in nuclear power, it’s always important to remember that the stakes are very high when it comes to litigation of any kind.
Be it uranium mining or the transportation of nuclear waste, our team of highly competent attorneys understand the complexities of U.S. and international energy law as it pertains to nuclear energy. We pride ourselves on offering our clients real-time insight into changing nuclear policy pertaining to their particular field of interest.
Oil & Gas Regulation
When it comes to oil and gas regulation, the ability to negotiate firmly and litigate expediently is key. Cases relating to groundwater contamination and lease title disputes are common, as are matters pertaining to natural gas compliance.
One can be dealing with environmental specialists representing both sides and international arbitrators and litigators with their own agenda. As such, it pays to have an experienced attorney who can advise who the correct regulatory bodies are and exactly what you’re up against in the event of environmental litigation.
Clean Energy Development
As exciting as the clean energy landscape is, it can be daunting when one considers the rapidly evolving environmental legislation that one needs to remain abreast of.
Energy service providers, investors, and project developers are working with utility companies on clean energy projects that run the risk of getting ahead of themselves. This is caused by not considering due diligence with the required permits or compliance with the relevant state’s regulatory requirements.
Understanding green building issues; the nuances of wind, solar, and hydro energy; and related environmental impact considerations are all themes that the team at Potts Law Firm remain up to date with by following energy policies and unpacking how they apply to businesses and individuals alike.
As such, we are ideally suited to explore opportunities in clean energy development with the appropriate legal acumen. Likewise, if you’ve been the victim of an over-exuberant clean energy vendor who has avoided legal compliance or the correct licensing procedure, and you and your business have suffered as a result, be sure to give our team of highly qualified energy law consultants a call.
