Alpha Natural Resources, Inc.
- Continuing our longstanding representation of the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection, our lawyers served as Special Assistant Attorneys General in the Alpha Natural Resources bankruptcy cases in the Eastern District of Virginia. The Alpha cases represented the State’s most significant effort to protect its interests in the bankruptcy proceedings of large coal companies. For DEP, our lawyers helped secure settlements that provided more than $325 million for reclamation and water treatment in the State. The firm’s team included Kevin Barrett and Michael Hissam.
