Houston partner, Robin Fredrickson, received industry recognition from Oil and Gas Investor becoming a 2019 Influential Women in Energy Award winner. Fredrickson has been on the front lines of the fast pace and ever-changing oil and gas industry for nearly 30 years. In the past two years, she has helped guide clients on deals totaling more than US$74 billion.
In a profile story, Fredrickson earned praise for her representation of high profile matters for guiding clients such as guiding Riverstone Holdings in its US$1.6 billion acquisition of Lucid Energy Group II LLC.
Fredrickson noted in the profile: "'Almost every deal is a challenge… Really, every deal is different; there are different personalities and different ideas of how it should be done. There’s no such thing as a cookie cutter deal.'"
In addition to her legal work, Fredrickson is also a mentor to associates often playing ping pong with them to help relieve tension. She teaches them "...to keep having a sense of humor is important when dealing with stressful situations," knowing it is a key part of success.
