Energy and Natural Resources Law is the body of law that allows for the organization of, finding, allocation, discovery, management, and ownership and the use of raw materials and energy sources that allow it to run. In simple terms, law only applies to big natural resource industries which include, oil, water, gas, and forestry.
Energy and Natural Resource law are overlapped with environmental, tort, administrative, tax, and land use law. The reason for a Natural Resource lawyer is because of the uniqueness and diversified approach for example; a client who wishes to make an offshore and onshore mineral deposit project is a unique type of business that requires a person of a similar specialization.
An Energy and Natural Resource lawyer understands the specific and unique business realities of the client they are dealing with. They are experienced in the details and negotiations and dealings in the contracts and applications. The Natural Resource lawyer has to alert their clients to warn them of any laws that can affect their business.
Many Energy and Natural Resource lawyers have specialization in details of the mineral resources and others are skilled in handling the problems that arise in the development of mergers or joint ventures. Recently, the natural resource industry is getting more and more globalized attracting international buyers and international laws and treaties to exist which is making it necessary for lawyers to specialize in this area too.
