Meyers Nave advises operators, interest owners, landowners, royalty owners, public agencies, universities and other insititutional clients on a variety of energy issues. We have an insider’s understanding of the operational issues faced by exploration and production companies, which forms the foundation on which we assist public and private clients.
We also frequently work with the firm’s public power and climate change practice groups to bring clients additional expertise. Our advice encompasses legal issues related to electric power generation, alternative and renewable energy, oil and gas, and landfill gas projects.
In connection with energy transactions, we have advised clients on lease negotiations, operating agreements, financing, production purchase and sales agreements, and sales of oil- and gas-producing properties and pipelines. Our litigation experience includes lawsuits over the rights of landowners and royalty owners, lease termination disputes, actions for breach of implied covenants and fiduciary duty, title matters, constitutional questions, securities fraud cases, and more.
