Energy, Oil & Gas

Duncan & Sevin is a leading energy firm with a diversified practice servicing clients in the pipeline and oil and gas production industries. The firm manages many legal aspects for our clients, including energy litigation, transactions and regulatory matters. Our attorneys are experienced with representing and handling proceedings in both state and federal courts, and involving personal litigation, property damage, contractual disputes and insurance related issues.

We successfully represented the first case where the United States Coast Guard sought civil penalties under OPA-90 from a company representative as a result of a blowout.

Our attorneys are also experienced in evaluating indemnity agreements. Not only do we assert and defend claims for defense and indemnity, we also draft and evaluate contracts for our clients because entering into the right contract is better than fighting over the wrong contract after an accident.

Our energy litigation services generally involve defense of the following:

  • Platform blow-outs
  • Loss of production
  • Business interruption
  • Environmental issues
  • Master Service Agreements
