Oil & Gas

WTO represents oil and gas clients nationwide in high-stakes commercial, environmental, and personal injury litigation, including class actions and mass torts. Our teams have won big for global corporations and independent companies alike. For example, in 2013, WTO lawyers successfully defended a major international energy company in a certified class action jury trial in which the class originally sought to recover $2.2 billion. In 2014, WTO won an arbitration award for future oil and gas royalties valued at between $70 million and $100 million for a small E&P shop in Houston.

Our team includes senior trial lawyers with 30+ years of oil and gas experience and a deep bench of highly qualified partners and associates with substantial oil and gas litigation and trial successes. WTO has defended and filed lawsuits involving creative claims across a range of practice areas relevant to oil and gas clients. This extensive experience and bench strength allow us to handle multiple legal challenges simultaneously, all across the country.
