On Tuesday, March 4, 2014 Reed Smith hosted its first half-hour program in a series entitled "The Coal Industry: A New Reality".
The topics included:
- How the recent chemical spill by Freedom Industries in West Virginia has created renewed national interest in the treatment of environmental claims in bankruptcy cases and what this means to the coal industry
- How to get your corporate house in order and avoid officer and director, contingent, and successor liability
- Updates and implications of recent cases and transactions
ABOUT THE SERIES: Companies must adjust to maintain a global role in the world of energy. Where is the coal industry thriving? How can coal companies better position themselves? What are some economic and regulatory issues to watch? These are some examples of the issues to be discussed in the coming series.
The next teleseminar in the series will be April 15, 2014. David W. Wagner of our Energy and Natural Resources Practice in Pittsburgh will focus on upcoming environmental regulations, especially the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed emission standards and guidelines for existing coal-fired power plants.
