Peter Scaff is an experienced trial lawyer working with energy companies in their most complex and important disputes. He has broad experience in state and federal courts, as well as domestic and international arbitration. Peter often works with large energy companies having a global presence, but also frequently represents smaller companies in important commercial litigation and oilfield matters.

Over the years, Peter has handled disputes concerning lease acquisition, seismic, operating agreements, joint interest billing/royalty payments, drilling, completion, production, workover and well control. Peter's focus on energy litigation allowed him to develop a unique expertise in cases involving downhole operations, allegations of lost or damaged wells, and reservoir engineering. Clients appreciate Peter's thirst to know their business, as well as his practical approach and keen ability to connect with juries.

Peter also assists clients with internal investigations and corporate misdeed issues, and has prosecuted to judgment a number of civil fraud and investment scheme cases. He frequently works in tandem with Gardere’s white collar criminal defense team, handling parallel proceedings.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
