GableGotwals Named “Highly Recommended Firm” by Benchmark Litigation

“There is no shortage of talent at GableGotwals, with more than 80 attorneys whose Oklahoma-based practices are represented on a global level. Their abilities are regularly enlisted by those large and small, from Fortune 500 corporations to individuals, entrepreneurs and privately-owned companies to foundations. The full-service firm has enjoyed distinguished success in energy and oil and gas litigation, Native American law and tribe rights, securities, antitrust, and construction. A source also reflects upon the firm’s work regarding professional negligence claims against auditors, physicians, architects, and accountants. Clients also voice appreciation. One applauds the firm’s “experience and talent, fast turnaround time on matters requested of them, and clear commitment to the client.”

Of the 60 attorneys dedicated to the firm’s litigation practice, several are consistently mentioned by clients, colleagues, and competitors. David Keglovits, Oliver Howard, Rob Robertson, and Dale Cottingham head the department and are all longstanding and prominent practitioners in the field. Keglovits focuses on general commercial litigation with particular attention to administrative and regulatory; construction; energy, oil, and gas; and insurance law as well as professional liability and malpractice. He joined the firm immediately following law school graduation in 1990. Peers are quick to acknowledge Howard for his vast litigation experience particularly pertaining to energy, oil, and gas and environmental law. Robertson brings more than 20 years of experience involving administrative and regulatory law, banking and financial institutions, corporate finance, and the energy, oil, and gas sectors. Cottingham is well adapted to the oil and gas field as well as a specialist in the water sector. Graydon Dean Luthey, Jr. is also considered a leading authority among Oklahoma’s litigators, recognized for his broad body of work over the past 30 years particularly where antitrust is concerned; however, he is experienced in many other areas, from appellate and ADR to energy, oil, and gas and Native American laws. A peer insists, “Bradley Welsh is an extremely talented oil and gas litigator.” With 10 years of professional legal experience behind him, the legal community expects him to continue to flourish as he progresses down this path.”

Benchmark is the only publication on the market to focus exclusively on litigation in the US and is considered the definitive guide to America’s leading litigation firms and attorneys. The guide’s results are the culmination of a six-month research period that allows researchers to conduct extensive interviews with litigators and their clients. During these interviews, recent casework handled by the firms is examined and sources are asked to offer their professional opinions on litigators practicing within their state or national practice areas.
