PITTSBURGH, June 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Kevin Colosimo, managing partner of Burleson LLP in Pittsburgh, will present “Recent Developments in Oil and Gas Law” at the Energy & Mineral Law Foundation’s 36 th Annual Institute held June 21 through June 23 in Amelia Island, Florida. The event, which is being sponsored in part by Burleson, will be attended by professionals from throughout the United States and will address key trends in laws and regulations governing natural resource development and energy use.
Colosimo’s session will be held on Tuesday, June 23, and will cover an overview of important judicial developments in oil and gas law both in the Appalachian region and throughout the nation. He will discuss several decisions that significantly impacted the industry’s legal landscape in 2014, including rulings related to:
- Leasing and conveyance in Louisiana;
- Royalty calculations in Texas;
- Local control and state preemption in North Dakota and Pennsylvania;
- Title issues in Ohio; and
- Ownership of debtor’s working interest in Illinois.
“There has been a lot of growth – and a lot of change – in the oil and gas industry over the last decade, and courts across the United States have been challenged with the task of consistently addressing emerging issues impacting development,” said Colosimo. “This session will touch on several of the past year’s big newsmakers to give attendees an overview of how the courts are handling some of these novel matters and deliver insight on key legal considerations that could potentially impact operations.”
Colosimo is a seasoned attorney who is experienced in all areas of oil and gas litigation, energy law, and business and contract law. He is counsel to dozens of exploration and production companies operating in the Marcellus and Utica shale plays of the Appalachian Basin.
