Like other firms in Texas, King & Spalding is vying for business from energy companies, and the firm launched an online Energy Law Exchange on March 11 as a resource for clients.

The website grew out of the firm’s three-year-old energy newsletter, which was started by partner Charles “Tim” Engel, a Washington, D.C.-based partner in the firm’s business litigation and energy practice groups. King & Spalding is based in Atlanta but counts Austin and Houston among its 17 offices.

Engel said 130 King & Spalding lawyers have written articles over the last three years about developments in energy law and business in all sectors of energy law, and 250 of those articles are posted on the Energy Law Exchange.

“What the Energy Law Exchange does is to catalogue those articles into practice areas, geographic regions and the like to provide access to those interested, as well as an ability to provide news alerts,” Engel said.

Engel said the newsletter he started three years ago still will go out to clients. The firm also operates a Directors Governance Center website.

“It helps to grow the brand of the firm,” he said.
