DLA praise for oil and gas knowledge

Have your say

The top ranked planning team at DLA Piper’s Sheffield and Leeds offices has been praised for its first-rate knowledge of the oil and gas sector.

Highlights for the team during the last year have included representing Moorland Energy in its successful bid for planning permission to develop a gas production and processing plant in North Yorkshire.

Meanwhile, second ranked Sheffield firm Nabarro’s expertise in the mining and minerals sector was put to good use in 2012 when it represented UK Coal Surface Mining at a public enquiry following the refusal of planning permission for an opencast mine, 10 miles south of Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
