With a hands-on industry background as a landman, Casey represents renewable energy developers in real estate transactions.

After college, Casey accepted a role as a contract landman, working on various oil and gas projects throughout the Appalachian Basin for four years during the initial Marcellus Shale boom. However, her heart lay in the emerging renewable energy field, and she was passionate about finding sustainable ways to power the planet alongside extraction. Casey knew she wanted to apply the lessons she was learning in oil and gas to renewable development, and encouraged by attorney colleagues, she enrolled in law school.

Casey began her legal career working on a wide variety of real estate projects, including retail and office properties; hotels; mixed-use projects; senior living and assisted care facilities; affordable housing; and commercial, retail, industrial buildings; as well as major hospital systems. She became particularly known for her skill at clearing title issues and handling complicated easements: an excellent researcher, it was second nature to her to dig for the root of a problem and find a solution.

Drawn to the firm’s industry-focused structure and its renowned Energy & Natural Resources group, Casey joined Husch Blackwell in 2023 in order to focus her real estate practice on the renewable energy sector. She assists with real estate needs, including due diligence reviews of wind and solar projects; negotiating and drafting lease, option, and easement agreements; reviewing and revising purchase and sale agreements and disclosure schedules; and coordinating title curative efforts, including reviewing surveys and drafting encroachment agreements for wind, solar, and battery storage projects throughout the U.S.

Often referred to as the best of both worlds, Casey is known for her unusual combination of hands-on experience in traditional energy; legal knowledge; and passion for and experience with renewables. Clients value her practical knowledge of the energy world, as well as her gift for providing solutions to complex problems.
