The energy industry and its participants, structure, markets, and regulation are constantly changing. Phelps Dunbar’s representation of energy clients reflects substantial experience in the evolution of the industry.

We are immersed in the industry’s ongoing developments in the production and generation, transmission and distribution, and wholesale and retail sales of energy commodities, as well as in the regulatory and competitive aspects of energy markets. Our broad energy practice is organized to recognize two major sectors of the industry.  Our power and utilities practice focuses on electric and natural gas utilities. Our traditional oil and gas practice covers both the transactional and operational aspects of the industry from exploration and production through transportation, refining and marketing.
