NATURAL RESOURCES

Fredericks Peebles & Morgan LLP has experience in assisting tribes with a host of opportunities and challenges in natural resource development, renewable energy and environmental law.

Natural Resource Development.  We have assisted tribes with negotiation of leases, joint ventures and independent tribal production involving oil and gas; coal; and electrical production through water power, fossil fuels and wind energy.  Establishing and maintaining an equitable lease arrangement requires careful and strategic planning to ensure that the tribe receives the compensation to which they are entitled.

Renewable Energy.  Tribal lands contain enormous potential for projects utilizing renewable energy.  These types of energy resources are an exceptionally valuable commodity in today’s economy.  Fredericks Peebles & Morgan LLP is on the cutting edge of providing the necessary expertise to assist tribes in building the foundations to promote tribal energy, self-sufficiency, economic development, and employment on tribal lands through creative use of renewable energy and energy efficient technologies.

Environmental Law.  Fredericks Peebles & Morgan LLP has substantial experience in representing tribes in environmental matters.  We have worked with tribes in areas governed by CERCLA (Superfund) the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Act, Environmental Justice, RCRA and other environment-related legislation and ordinances.  We have also helped tribes draft and implement ordinances dealing with environmental issues specific to their reservations.
