Reed Smith law firm said Monday that it has formed an energy and natural resources (ENR) practice group comprised of 100 lawyers in key locations across the 1,600-lawyer firmâ¿¿s global platform.

The ENR Group is multidisciplinary, combining regulatory, transactional and litigation disciplines. Its members are located in all of the Pittsburgh-based firmâ¿¿s offices in the United Kingdom, the United States, Europe, the Middle East and Asia, providing an exceptional global platform for businesses engaged in the extraction, production, distribution or financing of energy and natural resources projects, products and services anywhere in the world.

Philadelphia partners serving as members of the group include corporate lawyer Lori Lasher, litigator Carolyn Short, energy lawyer Robert Frank and real estate lawyer James Mogan III.

Partners Kyri Evagora of London and Ellen L. Bastier of San Francisco will head the group. The ENR Group pulls together the resources of various practice groups into an integrated and coordinated team focused on the broad energy and natural resources sector and its multiple, interrelated subsectors. The combined expertise of the group is a resource for clients who are developers, producers, manufacturers, traders, financiers and investors, insurers, and transporters in the energy and natural resources sectors, whether they are involved in the more traditional resources, such as oil, gas, nuclear, metals and minerals, or in renewable and clean energy.
