The firm’s oil and gas practice receives great praise and the team of lawyers are recognised for their contribution to what peers label a “first-class” practice in this field. Fulbright recently represented Anadarko Petroleum Corporation with its deep-water oil and gas development and field-wide unitisation in Ghana. The transaction was valued at approximately $15 billion and marked the first major oil discovery and first unitisation of offshore blocks in Ghana. The Jubilee Field, estimated to hold as much as 1.8 billion barrels, is the largest oil and gas discovery in West Africa in approximately 15 years. The firm has seven entries in the oil and gas chapter, four of whom are from the US offices, including the Houston-based Michael Irvin. Head of the firm’s global energy and real property development team, he is highly regarded for his expertise across energy transactions. In Washington, DC, the “excellent” Steven Pfeiffer is another leading name. London-based David Moroney’s expertise, among other things, includes advising on joint petroleum development areas, unitisation and offshore and onshore exploration and developments and in Dubai, Richard Devine is a respected name.
Fulbright is also well known for its “terrific” arbitration practice which sees six lawyers featured. Mark Baker is lauded for his dispute resolution work and features in both the arbitration and mediation chapters, as well as being recognised for his oil and gas work. In Dubai, Philip Punwar has been heavily involved in initiatives to modernise the UAE’s arbitration laws and Jonathan Sutcliffe is noted for his international arbitration practice, which includes the energy and construction sectors. In London, David Howell is co-head of the firms international arbitration and ADR practice group and has over 25 years’ experience in commercial, investment, construction and engineering disputes.
The firm fields five representatives in the trademarks chapter. In Austin, Richard Groos is credited for his expertise in the field and Michael Metteauer’s practice focuses on strategic counselling and enforcement involving famous brands, non-traditional trademark rights and internet issues. Timothy Kenny heads the Minneapolis office intellectual property practice and he is joined by the “first rate” Patrick Gallagher. In Washington, DC, James Williamson completes the firm’s impressive line-up.
Fulbright is equally talented on the product liability defence side. In Houston, Otway Denny is chair of the firm’s global litigation department and has litigated product liability cases involving chemicals, automobiles and other vehicles and construction equipment. In Austin, Terry Tottenham heads the firm-wide pharmaceutical and medical device litigation practice group and Lana Varney is “top tier”. In Dallas, Vincent Walkowiak is a respected name as is John Evans in London.
A talented trio feature from the firm’s management labour and employment practice, and Minnesota-based Barbara Jean D’Aquila is praised as a “leading litigator”. In Austin, Brian Greig is chair of the firm’s labour and employment department worldwide. Jeff Wray is based in the Houston office and his practice involves conducting collective bargaining agreement negotiations on behalf of employers and jury and bench trials of employment cases.
