Energy, including NuclearPillsbury helps energy clients respond to major accidents such as fires and explosions, accidental releases of hazardous substances and natural disasters. We provide advice at every point in a crisis from a company's initial response to managing ongoing investigations and devising recovery strategies. Our work often entails negotiating with regulatory agencies to ensure operations can continue while investigations are under way. Our experience spans the entire energy spectrum, from oil and gas, electricity and nuclear energy to renewables and clean technology.
The Leader in Nuclear Industry Representation
Pillsbury established the nation's first nuclear energy practice and remains the preeminent law firm in this arena. In crisis management, the firm represented the owner and operator of Three Mile Island during and after the 1979 accident.
A Preeminent Environmental Practice
We are adept at handling simultaneous reviews by multiple regulatory agencies and have shaped clients' responses to investigations by the FBI, EPA, NTSB, OSHA, NRC, the Chemical Safety Board and other regulatory agencies. A Pillsbury partner was lead lawyer for the independent Safety Review Panel that investigated BP's safety culture and oversight after the deadly 2005 Texas City refinery explosion.
