At Maynard Cooper, we are an integrated legal resource for the wide array of transactions and issues that those in the energy and natural resources industry have to address on a daily basis.

We have assisted clients with mergers and acquisitions in a number of areas such as oil and natural gas (including upstream and midstream transactions), coal mining, timber resources, stone aggregates, and other sectors. We have deep experience helping clients structure joint ventures and other collaborative efforts with other industry participants and with third party investors. We have assisted numerous clients in the acquisition and leasing of mineral interests and in helping clients resolve disputes related to parties’ interests in, or conflicting rights to, mineral interests. We have also worked with clients as they initiated projects in helping them to both identify and obtain various economic incentives. Given the complexities of regulatory issues in the energy and natural resources business, our clients turn to us for counsel on environmental compliance, mining permits and related issues that arise in connection with their daily operations.

Clients engaged in the energy and natural resources industry regularly call on us to provide advice and representation with respect to labor and employment matters, including collective bargaining agreements, regulatory investigations, EEOC complaints, as well as black lung litigation. We have orchestrated the condemnation of land throughout Alabama for several large pipeline companies. And when tragic events occur in our clients’ operations, we are an integral part of the team that is involved in handling the issues that arise including defending against claims made by both private parties and governmental authorities.
