Our team includes lawyers skilled in obtaining dismissals; negotiating settlements out of court and through alternative dispute resolution proceedings, including mediation and arbitration; and representing clients before government agencies and boards. When court intervention is the best means to achieve a favorable outcome, our clients benefit from our deep experience in state, federal and tribal trial and appellate courts. Our thorough case strategy and approach – from researching applicable law, conducting depositions and performing e-discovery to preparing motions, cross-examining witnesses and delivering powerful final arguments – are hallmarks of our practice.

We appear in federal courts across the nation, arguing before the U.S. Supreme Court, circuit and district courts, as well as in state trial and appellate courts. In addition, we regularly represent clients before federal, state and local regulatory agencies, including the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), the Department of Energy, the Department of Interior, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the General Services Administration (GSA), the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the Oklahoma Corporation Commission (OCC) and the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (COGCC).

Hall Estill litigators are noted thought leaders who not only help shape the law in – and out – of the court system, but who also share their insights through legal seminars, at industry events and by writing on topics that impact our clients’ lives and businesses. Chambers USA, The Legal 500 U.S., Best Lawyers, Super Lawyers and other noteworthy publications regularly recognize us for excellence at regional and national levels.
