HOUSTON—Sutherland Asbill & Brennan LLP is pleased to announce that Daniel Johnson, Partner in Charge of the firm’s Houston office, was selected among the Bayou City’s most influential energy leaders by the Houston Business Journal, which recently published its 2015 “Who’s Who in Energy” list.
This year’s rankings were among the most selective in recent years with only 38 local lawyers chosen among the leaders in various sectors of energy and the firms that service energy companies. The honorees were chosen by the publication’s journalists based on nominations.
Mr. Johnson has focused his practice on energy litigation since the beginning of his legal career more than a decade ago. He was deeply involved in the successful representation of an international drilling contractor in high-profile litigation after the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill. Mr. Johnson also advises energy clients on regulatory investigations and compliance issues, contractual liability exposure and risk shifting provisions, and incident response and crisis management.
With colleagues in New York, London, Washington DC, Austin, Atlanta and Geneva, Sutherland’s Houston office continues to forge the firm’s strong reputation as a trusted legal adviser in the energy space. Mr. Johnson’s selection to the Houston Business Journal’s energy leaders list is continued confirmation of Sutherland’s reputation in the Houston energy market in the areas of crisis management, project development, maritime law and commercial litigation.
