The changing energy landscape is reshaping the geopolitics that define our world. Wilson Elser’s Energy practice keeps pace by closely monitoring new developments in this evolving area, forecasting where it may be headed and anticipating how our clients can comply with applicable codes and laws to minimize their exposure.

Our energy attorneys deal with the casualty claims and toxic tort matters brought by employees and others that reflect the ever-present liabilities that come with operating refineries, dams, wind turbines and drilling rigs. We also defend the businesses that transport energy such as pipelines, tankers and ground transport, and ancillary providers involved in the industry, such as hazardous waste removal companies, and the products and equipment they use. We have considerable experience with energy and infrastructure projects, climate change and sustainability matters. Wilson Elser also represents clients engaged in or considering business ventures in emerging green energy fields, such as solar, wind, geothermal, cogeneration, biofuels and biomass.
