Energy & Natural Resources

Smart energy law solutions that help our clients power the world.

Across the country and around the world, Husch Blackwell clients are blazing new trails in energy production and sustainability – and we’re right there with them. As the global spotlight focuses on renewable and alternative energy technology, we draw on our long history across energy sectors to help developers, investors, owners and lenders forge the future.

Our Energy & Natural Resources law team includes more than 50 attorneys who devote their practice to guiding multinational energy companies through the complex business and regulatory issues facing today’s energy companies.

Our guidance to clients in the energy and natural resources sector includes:

  • Facility development and construction
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Project finance
  • Power markets
  • Permitting and regulation
  • Safety and health

Strategic Transactions

Between 2010 and 2020, we led our clients through energy mergers and acquisitions worth $21.8 billion. Although we have a keen focus on renewable power generation deals, which totaled $9 billion in 2020, our experience spans the energy industry. Our mergers and acquisitions work also includes utilities, oil and gas companies, transmission companies and fossil fuel power generation.

I continue to be impressed with Husch Blackwell’s Renewable Energy team. It is great to be able to count on Husch Blackwell as a trusted law firm partner for our large pipeline of projects, saving me time and energy otherwise spent on shopping every project out to local counsel.
