The Texas Lawbook Covers Longview Energy Win


Craig B. Florence, a partner in Gardere's litigation group, spoke to The Texas Lawbook about the South Texas decision awarding client Longview Energy Company rights to approximately 46,000 leasehold acres in the Eagle Ford Shale, valued at more than $500 million. The court found in favor of Longview based on its directors' breach of fiduciary duty, and aiding and abetting claims. Partner Randy D. Gordon and Associate Rachel Kingrey worked with Mr. Florence on the case.

"It's sort of like if you take one girl to the prom and leave with another, there's going to be trouble," says Mr. Florence.

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.
