Two Reynolds Frizzell Partners have been recognized by Benchmark Litigation on their 2019 Benchmark 40 & Under Hot List. Christopher Hogan, who was recognized for the third consecutive year, and James Schuelke were both included on the prestigious list, which recognizes practitioners that are among the top young talent in their respective litigation communities.
Chris “focuses his practice on energy, real estate, and commercial litigation. Recently, [he] obtained summary judgement victories on behalf of multiple clients in separate cases, including a major oil and gas producer in a breach of contract and fraud dispute brought by a seismic data provider. [Chris] defeated fraud and alter ego liability claims on summary judgment for multiple real estate entities against investors. As lead counsel in a 6-day arbitration between an oil and gas producer and an oilfield services company, [Chris] resolved the case, obtaining all of the client’s requested damages without paying any damages back based on the opposing party’s counterclaim. The client sought $4 million in damages and defended a $38 million counterclaim.”
“Debuting on the 40 & Under Hot List, [James] specializes in commercial and energy litigation. [He] served as counsel for OMNOVA Solutions in a weeklong bench trial related to the company’s acquisition of a drilling fluid additives business. He played a key and active role in the case’s victories on claims of breach of contract, statutory fraud and fraudulent inducement.”
