Utility and Energy Law
Watkins Calcara has, for decades, served as corporate counsel to wholesale and retail electric utilities serving central and western Kansas. That experience has enabled the firm to develop an in depth knowledge of the ever increasingly complex regulatory and compliance requirements relating to energy and utility issues ranging from environmental issues to transmission acquisition and rate design.
Our experience is not limited to electric utilities. Our firm can assist in many of the facets of the law relating to the development of mineral rights. For example, we can advise and assist in developing appropriate terms in leasing arrangements for oil and gas exploration from both the landowner's perspective (royalty interests) and as an investor/operator (working and carried interests).
