As a corporate firm, we also assist energy clients with corporate formation matters, contracts, employment issues, financing, mergers and acquisitions, and a host of other corporate related issues. Our primary focus in the energy market is helping those individuals who are building start-up businesses focusing on alternative energy marketing and development. We are not restricted in our assistance to start-ups as some other lawyers are by legacy ties to, and representation of, large oligopolistic and monopolistic companies.

As the evolving energy sector continues to introduce new service providers, conflicts between established providers and new providers emerge, presenting very specific challenges. Interestingly, these energy sector struggles mirror some of the same challenges faced by the telecom industry. Tapping into our firm’s extensive telecom experience with regulators and other government entities, Kitchens New Cleghorn, LLC offers a unique insight and ability to deliver expert consul to energy segment start-ups active in developing markets.
