Energy Law

Our energy practice attorneys handle matters ranging from preparation of original drill site title opinions to complex litigation involving title and transactional matters in state and federal court. Our clients span the spectrum of the energy sector and include lessee interests, landowners, oil and gas exploration and production companies, as well as natural gas pipelines in all aspects of the acquisition, from certification, construction, operation, and interconnection of pipelines for both intrastate and interstate pipeline facilities to expropriation for public purposes and natural resource litigation.

We represent clients before Louisiana's regulatory and administrative agencies, including the State Mineral Board, the Commissioner of Conservation, and the Louisiana Public Service Commission. And our experience extends to administrative proceedings, bankruptcy reorganization proceedings, litigation, mediation and arbitration.
