Branham Law, LLP Investigating W&T Offshore Over Alleged Violations Of Management Improprieties And Possible Fiduciary Duty Breaches

Branham Law, LLP announces that it is investigating W&T Offshore, Inc. ("W&T" or the "Company") ( NYSE: WTI) and its Board of Directors as a result of the Company’s apparent failure to comply with federal and state regulations, including, but not limited to, EPA violations surrounding possible illegal oil discharges into the Gulf of Mexico. A federal judge recently unsealed a whistleblower complaint that alleges the Company has been falsifying reports and dumping oil.

If you have information about these practices or have owned common stock in W&T since 2009 and would like additional information about the investigation, you can contact Trey Branham at 855-722-5910 or via email at tbranham@branham-law.com. There is no cost or obligation to you.

“We are particularly concerned by the apparent disregard of federal rules,” said attorney Trey Branham, “especially in light of the enormous damage already done to the Gulf by the BP fiasco. We need to ensure that the Board of W&T is taking the appropriate steps to ensure that these issues stop and do not occur in the future.”
