Energy Industry Litigation

Jackson Gilmour & Dobbs, PC attorneys have significant experience representing clients as both plaintiffs and defendants in diverse legal matters including class action litigation on behalf of royalty owners, antitrust claims, numerous contract and accounting disputes, surface-owner disputes, toxic tort claims, property contamination matters, and various commercial litigation matters. We are able to add significant value to our energy-sector clients by combining an uncommon understanding of the industry with a tested knowledge of difficult and often arcane oil and gas agreement clauses. This allows us to assist energy clients in crafting creative and efficient strategies to maximize success in litigation. In representing diverse energy clients, our attorneys have helped resolve a number of oil and gas contract disputes, involving gas supply contracts, interconnect agreements, processing agreements, gas dedication agreements, gas gathering agreements, and other related contracts. Moreover, our attorneys have been able to obtain early settlements and resolutions for our clients by using legal, technical and industry knowledge to identify key issues quickly and effectively.

Our attorneys have also represented major energy companies in complex Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) and other environmental cost recovery actions in mediation, arbitration and litigation in multiple venues. Our in-house experience in the earth sciences and our handling and understanding of complex environmental matters provide us with unique strategies and knowledge relevant to oil and gas disputes.
