Addressing Significant Energy Sector Issues
Weil’s Corporate Department has a stellar track record advising energy companies in high-value transactions. These matters have included significant transactions for such clients as Kinder Morgan, Access Industries, Apache, HM Capital, BlackBrush, TexStar LP, Magnetar Capital and General Electric, among many others.
Weil’s Restructuring Department has represented clients in a variety of roles in some of the most complex, multinational energy reorganizations in history. On the company side, as debtor’s counsel, Weil’s expertise and creativity have enabled clients to reorganize when many observers thought reorganization to be impossible. Expertise and creativity are equally important on the lender side, where Weil has assisted clients in maneuvering through the complexities that frequently exist with energy-related collateral, allowing our clients to maximize their recoveries while also leading them through the reorganization process.
Weil’s Litigation Department has handled many cases of great commercial significance to energy companies, including successfully defending clients against private, government, and class action lawsuits. Additionally, we litigate, mediate, and arbitrate swap agreements, ISDA master agreements, trading contracts, netting agreements, reserve reporting, toxic exposure, exploration and ownership rights, ERISA, shareholder derivative and securities litigation, and intellectual property and trade secrets issues both domestically and abroad.
