Last month, we opened the doors to Texas with the launch of our Dallas office. Today, our reach in the Lone Star State gets even deeper with the introduction of M&R Houston.
Houston is the largest city in Texas and home to the latest M&R location. Lauren Varnado has joined the firm as our Managing Partner in Houston, and in that capacity, she’ll lead our burgeoning energy practice.
The prospects for M&R in Houston are sky high. Lauren and her team represent oil, gas and petrochemical clients in high-stakes, “bet the company” lawsuits, and routinely advises private and public exploration and production (E&P) companies about rights and obligations under upstream, midstream, power and LNG contracts; litigation avoidance and risk mitigation; climate change litigation; and investments and contractual rights and obligations in renewable energy (solar and wind). Clients will also look to M&R Houston for guidance on matters concerning the acquisition and divestiture of oil & gas properties and midstream assets; oil & gas production and business operations; oil & gas leases; accounting obligations to interest owners; and royalty payment practices.
No doubt about it, this is another big day in M&R history, as we usher in a new office in Houston and an energy practice that is sure to take us to new heights.
