Energy and Environment

Our firm's strong national environmental law practice dovetails with many aspects of our energy industry practice. When upstream or downstream activities lead to personal injury, environmental, or property damage claims, our attorneys have the experience to handle these expert witness -intensive matters and work with engineers, appraisers, toxicologists, risk assessors, economists and forensic environmental scientists to provide superior representation. Our attorneys also advise clients on managing environmental risks and claims by adopting appropriate environmental indemnity clauses, performing appropriate environmental due diligence, ensuring regulatory compliance and developing other preventative and proactive strategies.

Jackson Gilmour & Dobbs, PC's extensive environmental experience is especially valuable with energy industry diversification and today's current focus on climate change, greenhouse gas emissions, carbon sequestration, renewable fuels and alternative energy sources. Our attorneys, many of whom draw from science and engineering backgrounds and prior oil industry experience, are especially well prepared to assess, understand and react to evolving climate change policy as it impacts the energy industry at the national, state and local level.
