Fredrickson has been on the front lines of the fast pace and ever-changing oil and gas industry for nearly 30 years.

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.'"
