Heslin Quoted in CBJ on NC Fracking Issues
Litigation Member Brian Heslin was recently quoted in a Charlotte Business Journal article about the uncertainties over hydraulic fracturing, also known as fracking. The piece, "Fracking Issue in NC Fires up New Legal Sector," discusses this controversial method of extracting oil or natural gas and what it means for lawyers in a variety of specialties around the state. Heslin is quoted as saying "local lawyers say several practice areas are likely to be involved if natural-gas drilling begins in North Carolina. Land rights, as well as mineral rights and water rights, come into play."
