Balch’s Corporate Practice collaborates with some of the nation’s leading businesses operating in heavily regulated industries, including utilities and independent power producers, oil and gas companies, private equity, hospitality, technology and retail. Our attorneys have significant and unique experience in the energy sector, including mergers and acquisitions of energy companies as they look to drive growth and expansion.
