Oil and Gas Litigation

Our team of professionals at Cunningham Bounds has an understanding of oil and gas litigation that flows from the oil platform to Wall Street, as demonstrated by our successful representation of individuals and businesses who suffered damages from the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill and our representation of a number of land owners in royalty disputes. In addition to the “Deepwater Horizon” case, Cunningham Bounds successfully represented the State of Alabama in one of the first major oil royalty cases to be tried, State of Alabama v. Exxon Corp., which eventually resulted in a  jury  verdict of  $63 million in compensatory damages and $3.9 billion in punitive damages.
