Fulbright Expands Dallas Energy Practice by Adding Key Energy Counsel
Plankinton focuses on energy and natural resource matters, with an emphasis on domestic and international oil and gas acquisitions and dispositions, oil and gas operational and regulatory issues, oil and gas royalty matters and administrative adjudication, as well as Native American natural resource issues.
Prior to joining the firm, Plankinton served as counsel to Exxon Mobil Corporation, providing legal support primarily for its U.S. West Operations, Comptrollers and Government Royalty groups. Plankinton has also served as a senior attorney for Texaco Inc. and as an in-house counsel for Marathon Oil Company.
Partner-in-Charge of Fulbright’s Dallas office, Kenneth Stewart, said, "The addition of Kip reinforces the firm’s commitment to its ever-growing energy practice. Kip’s capability in representing energy clients is a perfect match with our plans for serving the energy community in this region."
