“Shell’s Kevin Feeney and T&K’s $200M Arbitration Win”
When Kevin Feeney joined Shell Oil Company in 2017 as senior counsel of upstream litigation, the file for an ongoing confidential arbitration in Houston immediately crossed his desk. The claim alleged Shell had failed to pay a gatherer what was owed under a gas gathering agreement.
Feeney and his outside lawyers at Thompson & Knight faced many challenges in the dispute.
For starters, $200 million was at stake. It was an amount that could have flipped Shell’s investment, so everyone – from Shell management to the board of directors – was watching the case closely.
…Houston Thompson & Knight partners Greg Meece, Robert Paddock and Megan Schmid served as Shell’s outside counsel.
