About GableGotwals

One of the largest firms in Oklahoma with more than 90 attorneys divided up between three offices across two states, GableGotwals has made its mark on the states' legal markets in more ways than one. The firm has grown above and beyond its humble beginnings in 1944, now touting clients that range from Fortune 500 corporations, entrepreneurs, privately owned companies, and well-known foundations to individuals. Although GableGotwals' primary practice is in litigation and business transactions, the firm's attorneys focus in a total of 33 practice areas.

Handling Billions in Transactions

GableGotwals isn't intimidated by huge transactions, especially those that creep into the billions. Recently, the firm represented WPX Energy, Inc. in connection with the amendment and restatement of its $1.5 billion senior revolving credit facility, including letter of credit and swingline subfacilities and an accordion feature allowing for an increase of an additional $300 million. GableGotwals also represented a client in a crude oil pipeline transaction that involved related assets owned by an entity in which the client had a 50% interest. The client bought from that entity a crude oil pipeline system in the Houston Gulf Coast area and also consented to the transfer of the other 50% interest in that entity to another owner in a transaction valued at over $1 billion.

Not Just a Midwest Firm

The firm racked up quite the laundry list of accolades, being recognized by Benchmark Litigation, Chambers, and Oklahoma Super Lawyers and being named a Go-To Firm for the Top 500 Companies by Corporate Counsel, included in the "Best Law Firms" list by U.S. News & World Report and "Best Lawyers" in 63 areas.  But it isn't just journals and guides that rank the firm among the top; in 2016, more than half of the firm's attorneys - 51 to be exact -were named in the peer-reviewed publication "Best Lawyers."
