Commercial Litigation Oil and Gas

Houston’s economy is deeply rooted in the energy sector. Oil and gas companies, from both the US and abroad, have chosen to do business here for centuries. Upstream, midstream, and downstream companies engaged in onshore and offshore operations all have distinct needs and different considerations during a dispute. Some of the oil and gas related organizations we work with include major energy companies, land owners, insurance companies, financial institutions, private equity firms, refiners, transportation companies, and other service providers. Our specific focus on oil and gas allows us to be able to deal with a variety of litigation needs within the industry, including:

  • Personal injury
  • Lease disputes
  • Bankruptcy litigation
  • Exploration
  • Research and development
  • Royalty disputes
  • Environmental concerns
  • Mineral rights
  • Operation issues
  • Regulatory issues

This sector also requires unique knowledge, as most disputes do not involve just one jurisdiction. State, federal, international, and maritime law can all play a part in one case, and it can be difficult to litigate that case without a solid understanding of the impact of these different rules from around the world.
