For well over two decades, oil and gas and other energy companies in the Appalachian Basin, have engaged our practitioners to help address the array of general and industry-specific issues that confront those businesses.

Our clients partner with us because we understand the energy business and the legal environment in which it operates and because we take a real-world, business-oriented approach to the evolving challenges that our clients face. We make a point of understanding our clients’ short and long term strategies and are at our best when we play an active role in implementing those strategies. Our extensive historical experience representing exploration and production companies, drilling companies and their respective ancillary vendors has positioned us uniquely among Pittsburgh firms to service those clients both directly and indirectly affected by the recent surge in activity related to the Marcellus Shale.
