Energy issues present tremendous challenges and opportunities in both the fuels and power segments of the global energy industry. Covington lawyers and policy advisors offer an unmatched array of expertise and long experience in these critically important, interdependent and rapidly transforming industries.

We operate seamlessly across all our offices to deliver coordinated advice and representation in regulatory and legislative matters, litigation and arbitration, and transactional work that maximizes value for our broad range of clients.

Our energy clients span the entire spectrum of industry participants including the largest multinational and state-owned oil and gas companies, pipeline and transport companies, electric utilities and independent power producers, nuclear developers, a full range of solar, wind and other renewable energy companies, and companies with leading edge technologies in biofuels and clean transportation, energy efficiency, demand management and smart grid, and resource management.

We also advise venture capital firms, private equity firms, investment banks and commercial banks that provide investment capital to these businesses as well as leading trade associations for many of these industry segments.
