Energy Client Wins $95.5 Million and Eagle Ford Shale Expanse


Law360 featured Gardere Partners Craig B. Florence and Randy D. Gordon in an article describing Longview Energy Company's recent victory in a Zavala County court. Longview was represented by Mr. Florence and Mr. Gordon, along with Associate Rachel Kingrey and attorneys from Watts Guerra Craft LLP. The Texas state judge presiding over the case awarded $95.5 million and approximately 46,000 leasehold acres in the Eagle Ford Shale to Longview. The court found in favor of Longview based on breach of fiduciary duty and aiding and abetting claims.

"If you serve on a board, you're not allowed to compromise your loyalties," says Mr. Florence. "You have to serve that board. If you act as an investor, you have to put the company first and put your personal interest second."

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.


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.
