CHARLESTON, WV -

The law firm of Spilman Thomas & Battle PLLC announced Nov. 7 Scott Rotruck, former vice president of corporate development and state government relations for Chesapeake Energy, has joined the firm.

Rotruck is now director of energy and transportation services at Spilman, and will focus on the Marcellus and Utica shale plays as a member of Spilman's government relations team.  

"Scott brings valuable marketplace expertise and thought leadership to Team Spilman," Michael J. Basile, Spilman's managing member, said in a statement.
