SAN ANTONIO, April 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The San Antonio Business Journal named Burleson LLP the top energy law firm for the second straight year, a distinction that reflects the firm's continuing growth and underscores its commitment to serving companies that are active in the Eagle Ford Shale, the Permian Basin, and throughout the United States.
Burleson LLP's San Antonio office has more attorneys focusing on energy law than any other firm in the city. That represents a huge expansion since November 2010, when Burleson first established its presence in the Alamo City with a single attorney.
"We believe strongly in the role that Texas in general, and the Eagle Ford and Permian Basin in particular, is playing in supporting the nation's economic and energy security," said Alex Perez, the firm's San Antonio office managing partner. "We have assembled a strong team of attorneys that has the diverse range of skills necessary to help oil and gas companies maximize the potential of these regions and create opportunities in Texas and across the country."
The Business Journal's recognition continues a string of honors for Burleson, the largest full-service firm in the country devoted to oil and gas law.Last month, for example, its Denver office earned the Rocky Mountain Oil & Gas Award as Law Firm of the Year. The honor was in recognition of the firm's excellence in serving midstream and exploration and production companies; its demonstrated skill in the energy sector; and its excellence in undertaking, negotiating, and completing strategic deals. Beyond that, the National Law Journal, in a cover story headlined "All the Right Moves," focused on Burleson's rise from just a handful of lawyers a few years ago to a 100-plus multi-state firm that now serves companies with interests in every major shale oil and gas play in North America.
