Robert B. Nolan has more than three decades of experience representing clients in the environmental and oil and gas industries, both on and offshore. Admitted to practice in several states and federal jurisdictions, Bob has argued as lead counsel in Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, Texas and Florida. He has advised clients in hearings before the US Coast Guard and US Mineral Management Services.

As counsel for companies in the exploring, producing and/or transporting oil and gas industries, Bob has successfully handled surface trespass, subsurface blowouts, contractual disputes, personal injury and property damage matters.

As a significant part of his practice, Bob represents clients who seek to mitigate or transfer future risks that might arise from unwanted events. In addition, he’s negotiated agreements regarding the construction and operation of vessels and platforms.

Bob drafted statutory language that was adopted by the Louisiana Association of Business and Industry to change Louisiana law away from “joint and solidary” liability. Now, Louisiana law generally limits a party’s responsibility to that portion of fault or negligence attributable to the individual party. Bob co-authored “Oilfield Risks in American Maritime Law,” an internal publication distributed to clients and friends of the firm.
