July 12, 2018

Benchmark Litigation Euromoney Institutional Investor PLC has selected Haynes and Boone, LLP Partner Michelle Scheffler to its 2018 40 & Under List.

The publication commemorates the notable up-and-coming litigation attorneys in the United States. Those named to the list, Benchmark said, have had a hand in noteworthy recent cases and have earned praise from clients and peers regarding the quality of their work.

Attorneys named to the 2018 publication were chosen through several phases of research: namely, the review of their recent case work, peer review in which we consider how attorneys at peer legal institutions might rank them, and a consideration of client feedback on their performances. These attorneys, though young, have established themselves in their respective fields and are set to enjoy bright futures.

Scheffler is a solutions-oriented trial lawyer who counsels clients in complex commercial litigation matters. While Scheffler’s practice focuses primarily on clients in the oil and gas industry, she also handles trial and appellate matters in a wide variety of fields involving contract disputes, property rights and business torts. She regularly represents clients in multimillion-dollar lawsuits in both state and federal courts across the country.

In her oil and gas practice, Scheffler represents major integrated oil and gas companies, privately-owned independents and equity investors in a wide range of matters including cases arising under operating agreements, lease termination disputes, royalty litigation, and complex title disputes. Scheffler also provides pre-litigation counsel to her oil and gas clients, and advises on litigation risk for oil and gas transactions.
