Energy Law Definition

Energy regulatory law encompasses all aspects of legal practice related to meeting North America’s energy requirements. The energy industry is heavily regulated by numerous agencies at the federal, provincial, and municipal levels. The significant trade of energy between Canada and the United States brings into play international trade agreements and U.S. law and energy regulations. The high profile of energy issues ensures a significant public policy component to much of the work in this area.

Generators, producers, transmitters, distributors, governments, crown corporations, and consumers of energy all require legal assistance in pursuing their energy objectives. They may require advice relating to government relations, corporate or transactional structuring, mergers and acquisitions, aboriginal relations and consultation requirements, environmental law, regulatory advocacy, international trade, and constitutional and related litigation, all in the context of the challenging environment that the multi-facetted regulatory regimes impose on industry players.
