Ohio's Utica shale boom is having big impacts for lawyers, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported today.
Reporter Alison Grant filed a story on how busy Ohio attorneys are handling leases, dealing with titles and mineral rights and filing lawsuits tied to drilling for natural gas.
Ohio law firms are expanding oil and gas sections, and Ohio firms are partnering with law firms in Texas and Oklahoma where drilling has been more widespread.
The Utica boom could have multi-billion impacts for Ohio's law firms, she wrote.
