Kegler Brown was founded fifty years ago, primarily serving the oil and gas industry. Since then, we have broadened our scope of practice to become a full-service law firm – but we’ve never strayed from our roots in the energy industry.

Today, we provide comprehensive litigation counsel to oil and gas producers, drillers, mid-stream entities and ancillary service providers, as well as public utilities and competitive gas and electricity suppliers.

To support our extensive work with our clients in the oil and gas industry, our attorneys regularly publish articles, make presentations and have served as recognized leaders in the Ohio energy industry. Moreover, many of our energy attorneys have earned an “AV” rating from Martindale-Hubbell, the highest honor given by the peer-review organization, and have been recognized in The Best Lawyers in America and Ohio Super Lawyers
