Energy and Clean Technology

Energy and Clean Technology

Energy security, climate change, rising commodity and energy prices and other natural resources constraints are driving a global transformation in the manner that energy and natural resources are produced, distributed and consumed.

Companies and capital are devoted to the promotion of efficient, sustainable, and responsible uses of energy and natural resources and transformative technology innovation.  Smith Hurst is actively involved in the advancement of sustainability of energy and clean technology and provides strategic guidance to clients in sustainability law in the areas of energy efficiency, LEED and other green building technologies.  Our energy law attorneys are very proud to have provided legal counsel to the University of Arkansas Technology Development Foundation in the construction of the first LEED certified building in the State of Arkansas, the Innovation Center at the Arkansas Research and Technology Park.

Smith Hurst’s attorneys in our energy law practice are committed to providing our clients with sophisticated legal advice for their businesses.  We have advised our energy clients on mergers and acquisitions, intellectual property protection, state and federal regulatory matters, tax matters, and corporate issues.

Our commitment to the practices embodied in sustainability law extends to our business practices as well.  Smith Hurst energy law attorneys are active in sustainability programs and our firm is a participant in the GreeNWAy Initiative Program through the Fayetteville Chamber of Commerce.


Our team shares an attitude of excellence while
helping our clients achieve their business and personal goals.
