Energy & Real Estate


Vanguard Legal attorneys regularly represent domestic and international energy companies, including exploration and production companies, hydraulic fracturing, oilfield services, oilfield product, controls software and offshore services companies. We act as general counsel to energy industry clients in various energy transactions. In addition, we are experienced in corporate M&A, the acquisition and divestiture of mineral interests, and raising capital for investments in oil and gas. The oil and gas industry has gone through a rough patch over the last couple of years; but, it is ready for a rebound. We are ready to help oil, gas and related industry companies as they recover from the oil price slump and move toward recovery.
