Since the founding of our firm, Liskow & Lewis has been a leader in all aspects of energy and natural resources law. We have represented almost all of the major energy companies involved in the domestic production, processing, sale and distribution of oil and natural gas, both onshore and offshore. We also advise many foreign entities, as well as small- and medium-sized companies and individuals active in the industry.
From preliminary counsel relating to drilling through transportation of the finished product to consumers, Liskow & Lewis handles all phases of energy law. These include:
Our long history and experience in the oil and gas industry enable us to help clients capitalize on opportunities and assist in times of crisis. Our understanding of Louisiana’s vulnerability to hurricanes allows us to provide counsel and assistance across a comprehensive range of disaster recovery issues, including litigating matters when needed.
Scope of Experience
Our practice area attorneys work closely with our environmental and business sections in matters related to exploration, development, production, transportation and marketing of oil and gas reserves. This cooperative approach provides a distinct advantage for clients seeking comprehensive and integrated assistance with all areas of energy law, including mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, reorganizations, project finance, contracts, permits, regulatory matters, rights-of-way and title reviews.
In our representation of companies that refine oil and process natural gas, we handle a broad range of downstream matters involving pricing issues, gas purchase agreements, salt water disposal agreements and processing plant leasehold issues.
Since the firm’s inception, we have represented pipeline companies in their formation of right-of-way agreements, negotiations with landowners, expropriation of necessary rights-of-way and the securing of governmental permits necessary for the transport of minerals through the state of Louisiana.
