Texas Lawyer has named Susman Godfrey’s Rob Safi an Attorney “On the Rise” on its 2018 list. This list recognizes lawyers who have made their mark on the legal profession in the Lone Star State: “All of the honorees have had, and continue to have, extraordinary careers. The bottom line: They are all impact players in the Texas legal community.”
This honor comes just after Safi was recognized on Benchmark Litigation’s “40 and Under Hot List” and after his recent success in Spring Creek Exploration v. Hess Bakken Investments II LLC where he led the defense of repeat Susman Godfrey client and Fortune 100 Company, Hess Corporation, against $400+ million claims for breach of an Area of Mutual Interest Agreement concerning North Dakota oil and gas interests.
