Serving the Gas and Energy Business in Montana and North Dakota

Energy businesses – from extraction to distribution – shaped my work life. I grew up in oil fields in Montana, Wyoming, Nebraska, and Colorado. As a college student and young man, I worked on work over rigs and pulling units. As an adult, I have more than 30 years’ experience working as a lawyer engaged with energy businesses; including in-house representation of an electric and natural gas utility that conducted natural gas exploration and development, transmission, and distribution, as well as electricity generation, transmission, and distribution operations.

The corporation I represented also owned and operated subsidiaries engaged in non-utility oil and gas exploration and development, coal and gold mining, and independent power plant investment and operation. These businesses allowed me to work with oil and gas leases, natural gas purchase agreements, gathering system and transmission pipeline construction and operation, coal-fired generating plant ownership and operation, and hydroelectric generating plant ownership and operation.
