THE FIRM This compact but dedicated natural resources team has a broad practice covering energy and utilities, environmental, mining and water law. It regularly represents real estate developers, municipalities, and irrigation, mining and oil and gas companies.
Sources say: "A team that has always had a number of very good resource lawyers."
KEY INDIVIDUALS Water, mining, oil and gas, public land and administrative law form the backbone of Daniel Jensen's impressive natural resources practice. He handles a wide range of transactional and development issues, as well as related litigation.
Steven Christiansen is widely recommended as a strong air lawyer, but his practice extends further into environmental matters: he also handles climate change, environmental legislation and brownfield redevelopment, among other issues, on behalf of mining, petroleum, chemical, energy and public utility clients across the USA and Canada.
