HOUSTON, May 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Burleson LLP, a full-service corporate law firm devoted primarily to the oil and gas industry, announced that it has been ranked among the 2015 Texas 100, a list compiled by Texas Lawyer of the largest law firms in the Lone Star State.
The publication ranks firms according to a headcount of partners, associates, and of counsel. Burleson placed No. 59 with 51 attorneys in offices in Houston, San Antonio, and Midland who practice across a spectrum of areas – from litigation and business reorganization, restructuring, and bankruptcy law to corporate, energy, labor and employment, and regulatory law.
Rick Burleson, managing partner of the firm, said the news underscores Burleson's statewide geographic reach and comprehensive range of capabilities.
"We've established a significant presence in Texas because of the value our attorneys are bringing to clients both in and out of the energy sector," he explained. "In San Antonio, we have more attorneys focused on the oil and gas industry than any other law firm in the Alamo City. In Midland, we've grown threefold in less than two years and now have a solid bench of attorneys who are experienced in litigation and oil and gas transactions. And our Houston office continues to be a powerhouse of skilled energy attorneys handling the complete range of corporate, litigation, and restructuring matters for companies with interests throughout North America."
Since opening its doors in 2005, Burleson has grown from a handful of senior-level attorneys and a single location in Houston to more than 110 lawyers in six strategic offices in the most prolific producing regions in the United States: Texas, Louisiana, Pennsylvania, and Colorado. Its attorneys are licensed to practice in over 20 states collectively, and five lawyers in the firm's Texas offices are Board Certified in Oil, Gas & Mineral Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
