Practice Areas

Craig has decades of experience handling complex, high-end commercial litigation and finding ways to win high-stakes cases. He has the know-how to navigate intricate legal issues, and he frequently is hired to help turn around cases that suffered setbacks before he came on board. He handles matters not only in Texas but across the United States, including most of the oil-producing states between the Gulf of Mexico and the Canadian border. He has been lead counsel for oil and gas producers in multidistrict litigation and class actions with multimillions, and sometimes billions, of dollars at stake. He has been especially successful in defeating class certification efforts in suits involving royalty owners, and he has achieved favorable outcomes for defendants in class suits that previously had been certified against prior counsel. He has worked on many of the major cases in the United States impacting the oil and gas industry, including the largest qui tam – or whistleblower – cases; cases involving natural gas flaring; fracking; and cases involving environmental indemnities. He has represented a broad range of clients, including major and independent producers, pipelines, marketers, royalty trustees and financial institutions. He also has served as an arbitrator on energy-related matters.
