Our Liquids Pipeline Regulatory lawyers represent pipelines, as well as pipeline customers, in the development of new pipeline projects, whether in negotiating Transportation Service Agreements or counseling regarding the open season and declaratory order process at Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). We also file tariffs at FERC on behalf of crude oil and petroleum products clients, and counsel pipelines regarding their rates, terms and conditions of service, and compliance with FERC’s regulations.
We have highly skilled attorneys in areas such as master limited partnerships, project development, joint ventures, initial public offerings, private placements, private equity, environmental regulation, project finance, MLP/entity/project development tax matters, civil litigation, mergers and acquisitions, and antitrust. While many large firms can boast of general experience in these areas, our partners have developed their in-depth knowledge in the context of the energy industry and specifically the liquids industry. This gives our Liquids Pipeline Regulation lawyers the ability to tap quickly and seamlessly into an extensive network within the firm of attorneys with a vast knowledge of any issue that may arise.
