On 15.02.12, In Legal Industry, by Blake Houser
Burleson LLP, an energy law firm, welcomed the addition of Attorney James “Jim” Strawn in its roster. Strawn, who has made a name in his more than thirty years of experience as an oil and gas attorney, will be the Of Counsel in the Pittsburgh location of the energy law firm.
Although based in Pennsylvania, the legal practice of Strawn is more on the national level and is centered on all areas related to the exploration, as well as production, of oil and gas in the United States. His practice included acquisitions, mergers, marketing and midstream services, divestitures, access and leasing, joint operations, royalty and division of interest issues, master service agreements, and drilling.
On Burleson, Strawn said, “Burleson is the only energy law firm with lawyers on the ground in all key producing areas of the United States. That truly appealed to my practice, but the industry experience of its attorneys is perhaps what impressed me the most. Their capabilities and backgrounds run the complete spectrum of oil and gas law, which are incredibly beneficial in almost any type of transaction on behalf of an upstream company.”
Strawn is truly experienced in the distinct legal requirements which impact companies that have interests in the Marcellus and Utica shale plays. He had spent more than ten years advising Pennzoil with regards to its exploration and production activities in New York, West Virginia, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
