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 also represent 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 and jurisdictions. Our in-house experience in the earth sciences and our handling and understanding of complex environmental matters provide us with inimitable strategies and knowledge relevant to oil and gas disputes.
