Jones Walker's alternative energy practice draws on the cross-disciplinary work of our Green Law & Sustainability team, which helps clients anticipate, track, and respond to rapidly changing and increasingly complex environmental regulations. In addition to our focus on renewable fuels and alternative energy, we also advise clients on emerging issues in relation to climate change, green building, and sustainable development, green living, and corporate operations. Our experience in environmental, business, construction, renewable energy, land use, natural resources, employment, tax, government relations, and intellectual property law enables our attorneys to quickly identify and resolve issues that organizations commonly face, seeking to comply with and succeed in the regulatory framework prompted by calls for increased sustainability.

Our work includes carbon capture, algae, and other biofuels, wind farms, solar power, and other emerging sustainable energy sources. We handle complex onshore and offshore energy transactions, challenging regulatory matters, environmental and natural resource matters, government affairs, and all forms of industry-related disputes and litigation. From an industry perspective, our attorneys have spoken on topics such as geothermal energy law and have drafted and lobbied for the enactment of new statutes in Louisiana relating to carbon sequestration.

We also represent energy companies as both debtors and creditors in bankruptcy proceedings, as well as in pre-bankruptcy counseling. Our bankruptcy attorneys also represent clients in the energy industry when objections are made to their claims and when preference actions are asserted. We have represented clients in individual and class action disputes, administrative matters, mediation, and arbitration, and our experience has involved almost every aspect of the energy industry.
