Our deep understanding of the upstream and midstream sector has made us the go-to firm for various water management stakeholders involved in unconventional shale plays. Clients turn to us for our knowledge of water law and its broad applications, including regulatory matters, real estate, finance, litigation and legislation.

We have represented upstream producers and newly formed water management companies with drafting and negotiating gathering, disposal, connection, transportation and recycling agreements; acquiring and the disposition of water-producing and disposal assets; and drafting and negotiating freshwater supply, recycling and redelivery agreements. We also engage in legislative and administrative advocacy as it relates to this burgeoning industry, at the federal and state level.
