Vince Murchison

In 1992, Vince Murchison began his legal career with Jenkens & Gilchrist in Dallas where he practiced in the areas of upstream exploration and production and energy-related environmental law. During the next two decades Vince worked with some of the top firms in the profession, including Baker & McKenzie, Patton Boggs, and SNR Denton. In 2012, Vince decided to hang out his own shingle and open the Murchison Law Firm.

Vince’s environmental experience converged with the energy practice in the one-of-a-kind representation of Longhorn Pipeline. That 16-year representation involved asset due diligence, system acquisition, project development, permitting and authorizations, construction contracting, operational contracting, contract management, dispute resolution and, most importantly, navigating the most contentious and most thorough pipeline NEPA process of its time. Longhorn broke new ground in the realm of pipeline risk assessment, risk management and integrity management. Vince was the legal advisor with intimate knowledge of the system, its history, its risks. READ MORE
