- The Houston office of global law firm K&L Gates LLP
has added Jon C. Vicklund as a counsel in the oil, gas and resources
practice. Vicklund arrives at K&L Gates from Winstead PC, reuniting with a team of five energy colleagues
who joined K&L Gates from that firm early last year.
Vicklund focuses his practice on matters involving commercial litigation, eminent domain, products liability claims, personal injury, toxic torts, insurance defense, and real estate issues, among others. He has experience negotiating purchase and sale agreements and contract disputes, updating procedures and contracts, resolving catastrophic personal injury lawsuits, and disputing fraud allegations for companies in industries including oil and gas, environmental, transportation, chemical, and manufacturing.
“Jon brings a wealth of experience and his addition is a real boost to the Houston office and the Texas energy practice,” said Michael T. Murphy, managing partner of K&L Gates’ Houston office. “We are thrilled to have him join us.”
Vicklund’s arrival follows the addition of a four-lawyer intellectual property team
in Austin this week, including partners Stewart Mesher, Darlene Ghavimi, and Henry Pogorzelski and counsel Adam Stegge, as well as the earlier Texas additions of construction and infrastructure partner Bart Turner
and power partner Robert George
in Houston, and the aforementioned energy team of Jeff King, Jamie Bryan, Chris Brown, Elizabeth Tiblets, and Mitchell Murphy in Fort Worth, Dallas, and Houston.
