WHY LOCKE LORD

Locke Lord's midstream and private equity clients turn to us for our in-depth "soup to nuts" understanding of this vital link in the energy value chain. We have extensive experience in the buying and selling of midstream assets. In recent years, as midstream companies have focused more on building new energy infrastructure, we have been there for our clients, working side-by-side with them in the development of gathering, storage, processing and pipeline assets, including the largest interstate gas pipeline project in over 20 years.

Our midstream clients also turn to us for their ongoing operational needs, including:

  • Commodity purchase and sale agreements
  • Gas storage agreements
  • Gathering agreements
  • Processing agreements
  • Transportation agreements

Midstream companies trust our experience and industry insight when it comes to managing disputes efficiently and effectively. We advise clients from initial assessment to final resolution, and our lawyers are equally adept at trying cases through verdict or resolving disputes through arbitration.

Locke Lord’s energy regulatory team has extensive experience in the federal and state regulation of the energy industry, including natural gas, product and oil pipelines and other energy infrastructure assets. Our lawyers help our energy clients expeditiously guide their businesses, projects and transactions through regulations and oversight at the state level and before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and the Department of Energy in Washington, D.C.
