Energy Law & Leasing

Energy Law & Leasing

Coal, wind, and oil and gas companies have been a large part of the economic environment in Somerset County for many years. Energy law and leasing is a competitive and heavily-regulated sector of our economy. For these reasons, it is important for both landowners contemplating leasing their property and companies engaged in energy-related businesses to have skillful and knowledgeable legal representation.

At Barbera Law, our attorneys have been actively involved in the energy industry for nearly 65 years representing both landowners and energy companies. Our attorneys have accumulated a wealth of knowledge about energy law and leasing, and are, therefore, able to supply the needed counseling and representation in areas such as:

  • Negotiating, drafting, and reviewing energy lease agreements and contracts
