The law firm of McCarter & English, which is headquartered in Newark, New Jersey, made a major announcement on Monday morning. According to NorthJersey.com, the firm purchased energy law firm of Miller Balis & O’Neil. The energy firm is headquartered in Washington, D.C.

The purchase took effect on February 1 and occurred in order to strengthen the environment and energy practice of McCarter & English, according to the firm’s release.

In the release, McCarter & English’s chairman, Michael P. Kelly, and Miller Balis & O’Neil’s managing principal, John P. Gregg, said, “Miller, Balis & O’Neil desired to offer its clients greater support for complex transactions and litigation as well as a wider array of services. And although McCarter has a basic energy practice, the energy practice at Miller, Balis & O’Neil adds significant depth and breadth.”

Kelly and Gregg continued with, “This is a complex environment for law firms and all businesses, including those in the energy sector, and we are confident that this makes sense on every level,” Kelly and Gregg said in the statement. “We will serve our energy clients’ needs in areas ranging from regulatory, public finance, and environmental law, to real estate, construction law, tax or insurance coverage matters, to name just a few.”
