Our labor and employment attorneys routinely assist energy clients on human resources and employment matters, including OSHA compliance/citations and other workplace safety matters, compliance and claim resolution regarding the Fair Labor Standards Act, and personal injury claims. We have represented oilfield equipment manufacturers and providers in multiple trade secret and noncompete matters against former employees and competitors across the country.

We advise energy clients on day-to-day employment matters and decisions involving potential liability, such as disciplinary actions, terminations, and immigration matters. Attorneys also assist with complex issues involved in working with the Department of Labor and OSHA, and responding to labor unions, including avoidance strategies and contract negotiations.

Despite best efforts, worksite accidents can happen. Oil and gas clients count on our OSHA investigations team to ensure that their rights are protected during a crisis. We understand where OSHA’s compliance officers focus their attention and the procedures OSHA must follow for the duration of the inspection and its conclusion.
