Hydraulic Fracturing

As the United States grapples with balancing its national energy and national environmental policies, energy and environmental groups have increasingly focused their attention on the risks and rewards of developing the nation’s natural gas reserves through hydraulic fracturing (or “fracking”) of our vast domestic shale gas reserves.  The fracking process has become much scrutinized in the press and is a target of plaintiffs’ attorneys nationwide.  To support our clients in the insurance, energy and real estate industries in responding to issues arising from hydraulic fracking, Sedgwick LLP has formed an interdisciplinary, cross-practice Hydraulic Fracturing Task Force.
