We understand that our clients are our business and believe it is an honor each time we are hired by a new client, as well as each time we are retained on a recurring basis by our current clients. Our practice each time we begin a new matter is to sit down with our clients and determine their desired result, and then formulate and implement a plan to pursue that result in the most efficient and economical manner. We welcome and encourage our clients to be our partner, with the understanding that our clients expect and deserve our active advice and guidance.

We also frequently act as local counsel for out-of-state firms in Oklahoma state and federal district court matters. 

Litigation


Mergers & Acquisitions

We understand the importance of your exit strategy or taking advantage of unique opportunity through acquisition.  In many instances, the short-lived process of buying or selling can impact a company and its investors' future for years to come.  With an eye on the psychology of the deal and the business objectives driving the decisions, we are able to bring a wealth of experience to the negotiating table to mitigate risks and to contribute to your success.  We have represented buyers and sellers in industries such as energy services, automotive, health care, technology, manufacturing, financial and professional services.


Regulatory / Administrative Law

We have attorneys that are regulatory and administrative law experts; who can negotiate through government agencies and commissions to obtain necessary approvals and realize business-friendly decisions.  Our expertise extends from both federal agencies like the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission ("FERC") and EPA to state agencies Ike the Oklahoma Corporation Commission.


We work to contribute to your company's success by assisting our clients every step of the way.  Whether it's creating a new business, negotiating license agreements, preparing contracts, terms and conditions, supply agreements, release agreements for a partner or employee, changing organizational structure, negotiating joint venture agreements or other strategic agreements, we bring experience from extensive transactions over the years to help contribute to your success.
