Leaders in the Energy Industry

Kean Miller traces its roots to the dawn of the energy and petrochemical industry. Our predecessor firm represented clients in this developing sector from the earliest days of oil and gas exploration in the region. In the 1920s, many of the firm’s national and international energy, pipeline, and chemical clients came to the law firm that would become Kean Miller for the acquisition of raw land along the Mississippi River for their first refining sites. As these companies and our region expanded and grew, so did the variety and complexity of their legal needs. From real estate transactions to business agreements, from environmental regulation to employment law, from construction contracts to commercial disputes, and from tax law to economic development incentives, Kean Miller became the law firm of choice for industry, regional businesses, and national companies. Today, many of these original clients continue to rely on Kean Miller for efficient, effective legal services. As with all our clients, the trust and confidence they place in us is based on our deep understanding of their legal needs, our knowledge of their business and their people, and our unique regional know-how.
