Babst Calland’s energy attorneys work collaboratively with in-house counsel, executives, and other outside advisors to provide timely and cost effective legal strategy and support. We work with energy clients seeking experience with legal and regulatory matters related to environmental, land use, pipeline safety, construction, litigation, mineral title, transactions, real estate, and employment and labor.
Babst Calland represents E&P and midstream companies in many of the most active shale plays including the Marcellus, Utica, Permian, Eagle Ford, San Juan, SCOOP/STACK, Powder River, Alaska and Williston among others. We understand each geographic footprint and can best present a preventative legal strategy with a deep knowledge of state regulation and local jurisdictions. Our attorneys play important advisory roles with clients on a myriad of issues related to oil and gas transactions, due diligence, state and federal matters, pipeline safety, local government challenges, lease disputes, royalty interest determinations, and title examination.
