Three Firm Attorneys Named to List of Nation’s Top Energy Attorneys

Congratulations to the firm’s Mike Lynn, Michael K. Hurst and Jonathan Childers, named to the list of the Lawdragon 500 Leading Energy Lawyers for 2024. In announcing the list the publication notes that energy may be the hottest practice area in the legal profession, and this year’s group represents attorneys skilled in a range of matters, from sustainable finance and oil company M&A to contentious and high-profile energy-related disputes.

Each LPHS honoree has achieved historic success in representing energy clients in the courtroom, with Mike securing a $940 million verdict on behalf of Energy Transfer Partners and a $145 million verdict on behalf of T. Boone Pickens and his company Mesa in Reeves County, Michael obtaining a $45 million judgment for an energy investment firm in a case involving breach of fiduciary duty and fraud in the formation of an oil and gas partnership, and Jonathan in successfully defending a major privately-held energy company against claims seeking an interest in years of proceeds stemming from a West Texas oil and gas deal. They continue to actively represent other plaintiffs and defendants in high-stakes energy litigation.
