Thompson & Knight's uniquely high level of expertise in oil & gas and energy reorganization proceedings is demonstrated through our attorneys' regular lecturing, writing, and speaking on these issues. We represent the entire range of constituencies in energy reorganizations, including debtors, secured and unsecured creditors, bondholders, committees, and regulatory agencies. Our attorneys understand and are highly experienced in all aspects of plan negotiation, preparation, and confirmation, and are particularly well-versed in such litigation options as asset valuation, preference, fraudulent transfer, avoidance, and officer and director litigation. We have assisted clients in debtor-in-possession financing, motions to lift stay, exit financing, asset purchases and sales (including Section 363 sales), data rooms, bid procedures, and dealing with environmental issues. Our attorneys are extremely experienced in Gulf of Mexico and other federal lease oil & gas issues, including working with the Minerals Management Service, the Louisiana State Mineral Board, the Texas General Land Office, state Attorneys General, and other regulatory and supervisory agencies.
