Shale Resource

The Marcellus and Utica Shale natural gas formations present monumental opportunities – and significant potential legal obstacles. Companies operating in this industry are facing a complex set of legal issues, from land-use challenges, to pipeline construction matters and complex, overlapping regulatory systems; in addition to constant political pressure for more stringent legislation and regulation.

Our more than 30 years of experience representing public utilities, the gas industry, manufacturers, power generators, and land developers provide us with a unique perspective on balancing the extraction of clean, natural gas and new job creation, with the important regulatory and environmental concerns. Offering a multi-disciplinary group of practices and attorneys in offices across Pennsylvania, our Shale Resource Practice Group provides counsel on transactional, regulatory, construction, environmental, and governmental affairs matters, represents companies, and their executives and employees, in government and internal investigations, and defends them in related commercial, civil, and criminal litigation.
