Oil and Gas

McGuireWoods has unique and extensive experience in both unconventional and conventional natural gas markets. Our practice includes gas-related transaction, taxation, and litigation work, and we offer consulting and lobbying services through McGuireWoods’ full-service public affairs subsidiary, McGuireWoods Consulting LLC.

The level of McGuireWoods’ presence in this market has afforded our lawyers access to the trenches for exploration, production, midstream, transportation and environmental work. We have offices in the key gas production states of California, Texas, Pennsylvania, Illinois, New York, Maryland, North Carolina and Virginia, as well as experienced attorneys licensed in West Virginia, Indiana and Ohio. We bring the firm’s collective resources to bear wherever our clients do business.

Our current clients are engaged in upstream, midstream and downstream markets, and include major oil and gas companies, and large and small independent producers involved in exploration and production. Similarly, we have experience with key aspects of the ownership, operation, regulation and taxation of natural gas pipelines and distribution companies, including the construction, permitting and operation of gas transmission and gathering facilities. We have also developed a concentration in matters related to low-pressure distribution lines, compressor stations and storage facilities.

Representative Matter

Representative Matter

Secured precedent setting class certification opinion in 4th Circuit

EQT Production Co. v. Adair, 764 F.3d 347 (4th Cir. 2014). Obtained favorable appellate ruling for our gas company client and two co-defendants vacating certification of five classes related to coalbed methane (CBM) gas royalty litigation. In its opinion, the court analyzed Rule 23 requirements and definitively placed the burden first on plaintiffs to meet those requirements and then on the district court to analyze them robustly. In this precedent-setting opinion, the court focused on the ascertainability and commonality prongs of Rule 23 analysis.
