Providing Powerful Energy Solutions.

Peacock Keller provides comprehensive legal advice to our energy clients, which include some of the largest producers of fossil fuels in the nation.  Leveraging our deep experience in coal, oil, gas, shale gas, and other minerals, our Energy group counsels our clients on a wide variety of energy-related matters and partners with our clients to identify issues and provide cost-effective solutions.  Since our inception, we’ve been here, in southwestern Pennsylvania, to assist our energy clients, and we will continue to be here – today, tomorrow and long into the future.


Long before Marcellus Shale became a household name in southwestern Pennsylvania, Peacock Keller’s Energy Law group focused its practice on Western Pennsylvania’s foremost natural resource: coal.  Despite the emergence of Marcellus and Utica Shale, coal remains an essential component of the region’s energy mix.

For over sixty years, our attorneys have reviewed hundreds of thousands of acres of coal and surface title and have assisted our coal company clients with matters ranging from issuing title opinions to successfully defending and litigating the industry’s right to plug abandoned natural gas wells within its coal reserves.  Through our decades of experience, our attorneys have become leaders in the coal industry and are well-equipped to handle all of your coal-related energy concerns.

Oil & Gas

As the energy industry has evolved and natural gas production from shale plays such as the Marcellus and Utica has increased, so too has Peacock Keller’s Energy law group.  

There is no denying that the vast gas reserves found within the Marcellus and Utica Shale have attracted the attention of both energy providers and landowners from across the nation to our region.

Our extensive experience and knowledge of the local landscape uniquely positions us to meet the needs of natural gas producers and midstream pipeline companies seeking to enter or expand operations in the Pennsylvania's Marcellus Shale region.  Our energy lawyers have built a solid reputation in the community and within the industry based upon our long-standing, dedicated, successful representation of clients and our continued commitment to effectively address any and all oil and gas related energy issues that you may face, including matters ranging from land use and zoning matters to lease dispute litigation.
