Oil & Gas High Energy

The energy industry is in the midst of one of the most transformative periods in its history. Significant shifts in supply and demand, emerging technologies, and international climate agreements are driving innovation. Yet oil and gas remain central to the global economy. Many of the demands placed on conventional energy generators, distributors, developers, and customers have arisen in the wake of a global societal shift towards clean, green, and affordable energy. We provide judicious advice to assist conventional energy clients in making the transition to a cleaner and more sustainable use of fossil fuels or otherwise take advantage of existing market opportunities.


Constructive Arguments 

The firm has experience in the U.S. and abroad in claims related to expansion and construction efforts involving oil field operations, environmental, land use, and natural resource concerns related to oil field services and Superfund sites. Our clients include oil and gas producers, downstream entities, and contractors involved in the industry. We also served as class counsel for a plaintiff class of more than 500,000 Native Americans in a lands and class actions suit against the Department of the Interior and Treasury Department. Kilpatrick attorneys are highly experienced in defending and prosecuting claims in many aspects of the oilfield services sector and handle corporate matters for key players in the field.  


Maintaining Cover

Kilpatrick assists clients with internal investigations regarding environmental and occupational safety matters in oil and gas operations, securing sophisticated insurance coverage, and in patent claims involving oilfield technologies, such as signal processing, circuits, control systems telemetry, radiation and material monitoring, viscosity, sensors, imaging tools, motor drives, and materials and compositions, including polymer. We have experience representing and advising investor-owned and publicly-owned utilities, independent power producers, industrial and municipal customers, developers, equity investors, and lenders, both domestically and internationally.
