For nearly 120 years, Thompson & Knight has counseled oil, gas, and energy industry clients – those who explore, develop, produce, store, market, transport, and process energy resources. Our practice is active and comprehensive, as we represent clients in transactions and resolve disputes in dozens of countries around the world.
Thompson & Knight’s clients include multi-national and independent oil and gas companies, host government oil and gas companies, large utilities, private power plants, energy industry service giants, refineries, petrochemical companies, financial institutions, and multi-national drilling contractors and construction companies.
Thompson & Knight is one of the only large law firms in the United States to have a separate Oil and Gas Practice Group. Furthermore, 88 percent of the Firm’s attorneys have worked on energy industry matters. As a result, we not only provide our clients with an integrated service through the collaboration of attorneys across multiple practice areas, but each of these attorneys also truly understands the energy industry. We have the requisite knowledge to handle any energy industry dispute as well as the ability to cover every aspect of an energy transaction, including the oil and gas, corporate, tax, environmental, finance, labor and employment, real estate, and even intellectual property facets of the deal – thus giving the Firm and our energy industry clients a competitive advantage.
