Houston associate Meg Griffith has been selected by the Institute for Energy Law (IEL) to be part of their sixth annual Leadership Class. The IEL is one of the world’s oldest continuing legal education providers. It presents several educational conferences and seminars each year, publishes papers and periodicals, and provides an important forum in which contemporary issues affecting the energy industries can be discussed.
Meg has a diverse practice of high-stakes, cutting edge litigation. Her energy litigation experience includes defending multi-national oil and gas company, Chevron, in dozens of lawsuits relating to the loss of marsh land in Louisiana filed by Louisiana Parishes and the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources and representing Mirada Energy and its affiliates against Equinor Energy LP in lawsuits arising out of Equinor’s operations in the North Dakota Bakken oil and gas fields.
Forty impressive individuals were selected by a committee to take part in this year’s class, which consists of attorneys from eight states and Washington, D.C. Their experience in the field ranges from three to thirteen years While many work in oil and gas litigation and transactions, several also have experience in areas such as tax, CCUS, hydrogen, nuclear, solar, wind, ESG, regulatory, and more. The leadership classes commence in August and all students will participate in a class retreat in September. The class will then continue through Spring 2024 with webinars, networking events, and other programming geared toward developing young energy professionals.
