Lawyers Cashing in on Energy Boom Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Mon, May 26, 2014, 07:36 PM

When attorneys aren't chasing ambulances, they're running after big time oil executives in Texas. 

The Houston Chronicle reports that, "Jason Leif, a partner in the Houston office of the Jones Day law firm, was elected recently as president of the Energy Bar Association, a national organization of 2,600 members active in various aspects of energy law. Leif’s practice focuses on pipelines as well as liquefied natural gas permitting and construction. His clients have included BP, CenterPoint Energy and Chevron, among others."

Lawyers see grand opportunities with President Barry Obama flooding the oil & gas industry with excessive regulations.

According to the Houston Chronicle, "Before joining the law firm, he worked at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and advised judges on litigation involving pipelines and utilities. He discussed the legal side of energy with FuelFix. These are excerpts from the interview, condensed and edited for clarity:"

Needless to say, there could be lawsuits aplenty for those looking to fight major oil & gas companies.
