GAILLE PLLC is an outside general counsel and energy transactions boutique with national and international reach, including representation of matters in Africa, Asia, and South America. We focus on providing outside general counsel services to entrepreneurs and on representing clients in domestic and international energy transactions.

COMMERCIAL LAW BOUTIQUE

GAILLE PLLC offers large firm quality and experience paired with boutique client attention. Handling a wide variety of commercial matters, we concentrate on two areas:

Outside General Counsel. GAILLE PLLC serves as “outside general counsel,” particularly to companies lacking their own in-house legal departments. In doing so, we serve as a trusted, on-call counselor and advisor to business owners, managing all of their legal matters, including litigation, thereby freeing them to operate and grow their own businesses.

Global Energy Projects. GAILLE PLLC represents energy companies, investors, and governments in domestic and international mergers and acquisitions, project development transactions, EPC contracts, private equity investments, joint ventures, and a variety of other energy matters. GAILLE PLLC offers clients extensive global experience with upstream exploration, development, and production, as well as midstream oil and natural gas pipelines.

CLIENT-CENTERED EFFICIENCY

GAILLE PLLC takes a client-focused approach that is tailored to achieving each client’s goals and needs through cost-conscious, efficient representation. We offer a unique perspective on efficiency due to our founder’s experience as a consumer of legal services. This enables GAILLE PLLC to better design solutions that reflect the cost and value equations of each client, and more specifically, each matter. We understand the importance of value and quality, and we endeavor to deliver both along with personalized attention.

FLEXIBLE FEE ARRANGEMENTS

Recognizing that clients benefit from flexible fee arrangements, GAILLE PLLC offers several options and is always willing to consider alternatives to traditional fees. In addition to highly competitive hourly rates, we offer flat and success fee arrangements, among other options. For example, GAILLE PLLC’s “outside general counsel” services can be billed at a flat monthly rate, which enables business owners to seek routine consultations without worrying about the billing clock.

RECOGNIZED EXPERTISE

GAILLE PLLC’s founder is an Adjunct Professor of Management at Rice University’s Graduate School of Business and a Lecturer in Law at the University of Chicago Law School. As a global thought leader, he is the author of two energy textbooks, five peer-reviewed articles in the Energy Law Journal, and is frequently invited to speak on topics of law and the energy industry. Our founder previously practiced law with Vinson & Elkins LLP and Occidental Petroleum Corporation and was the CCO, General Counsel, and Corporate Secretary of a NASDAQ-listed exploration and production company.
