We have significant experience with energy litigation and have consulted with over 25 energy companies, including work on behalf of the nation’s major energy suppliers. This work includes: contract disputes; environmental issues; intellectual property; royalties; affiliate transactions; transportation fees; antitrust issues; employment disputes; fraud; tax assessments; permitting issues; and personal injury litigation. This work spans from the West to East Coasts and from Alaska to the Gulf of Mexico. We have been asked to share our energy litigation insights with groups such as the American Petroleum Institute and the Institute for Energy Law.
We assisted a defendant producer sued in a class action royalty case. We conducted pretrial research and designed a streamlined 45-minute voir dire that identified biased jurors and subtly introduced the key case themes. The client prevailed at trial and jurors returned a complete defense verdict in less than an hour.
