Practices

Overview

Kaplan Kirsch & Rockwell attorneys are experienced in the development of most forms of electric power generation, including renewable energy from wind, solar, biomass, and hydroelectric power as well as fossil fuels with an emphasis on natural gas-fired projects.  We also have expertise in fuel supply, storage and transportation, integration of intermittent resources, and transmission infrastructure.

We represent clients facing the range of issues and questions regarding development, construction, permitting, land use, and environmental concerns that arise in the development of energy resources. Specific examples of these challenges include land-use approvals, leasing, National Environmental Protection Act (NEPA) review, surface and mineral rights negotiations, access and other public lands issues, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) permitting, Endangered Species Act (ESA) permitting, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) obstruction evaluation, and state public utilities commission proceedings.
