    Law firm Jackson Kelly adds attorneys focused on oil and gas

    Jackson Kelly PLLC

    To serve its growing energy practice, Jackson Kelly PLLC has moved its Ohio office from Canton to Akron and has added established Akron attorneys Mark Bernlohr, Clay Keller, and J. Alex Quay, who will practice in the firm’s Industrial, Environmental and Complex Litigation Practice Group.

    Jackson Kelly CEO Michael D. Foster said that the firm’s eastern Ohio expansion is in response to continued client needs. The firm currently has offices throughout the Marcellus, Utica, Niobrara and New Albany shale basins, and has announced the addition of more than 20 attorneys in its Indiana offices last week.

    “With the continued development of the Utica shale, our Akron office is geographically located to further enable Jackson Kelly to provide a full range of legal services to clients who have assets and interests throughout the region,” Foster said.  

    Bernlohr has practiced in Ohio for more than 25 years and has experience representing large oil and gas exploration companies and related industries in various types of litigation. He represents contractors, owners, developers, architects, and suppliers in the prosecution and defense of construction claims; equipment leasing/finance companies and banks involved in equipment leasing and litigation; and several large oil and gas exploration companies in the defense of their oil and gas lease rights. Bernlohr has over 55 published opinions and has extensive jury and bench trial experience.

    Keller has a broad array of experience representing upstream and midstream companies operating in Ohio for the exploration and development of the Utica shale play. He represents producers and midstream companies as trial counsel in litigation matters involving mineral title disputes, right-a-way agreement disputes, Dormant Mineral Act claims, oil and gas lease termination, trespass, nuisance and water well contamination claims, joint venture disputes, mineral title curative issues, and statutory unitization matters. 

    Quay’s practice involves a wide variety of oil and gas and energy law matters, including litigation related to lease lawsuits, lease construction and interpretation, unitization, and emerging issues involving Ohio’s Dormant Mineral Act. In addition, his practice involves title examinations and the preparation of certified oil and gas title opinions. He also represents clients in matters relating to real property disputes, quiet title actions, and mineral ownership disputes.
