Longview Attorneys for Oil, Gas & Energy Resources

Providing a Full Range of Legal Services to Clients

In 1950, Howard Coghlan started a law firm specializing in representation of clients active in the oil and gas industry by providing title opinions, preparing transactional documents and offering legal counsel regarding all aspects of the industry. Soon the firm grew to a full-service law firm, including estate planning, probate, civil litigation, negotiation of complex agreements and representation of clients in contested lawsuits in Longview and all of the surrounding East Texas counties. By the mid-1970’s, the Coghlan firm had expanded its influence into the coal and lignite industry and was considered the pre-eminent energy law firm in the Northeast Texas area.

The lawyers of Coghlan Crowson aspire to continue that level of excellence, whether we are preparing title opinions, litigating disputes or offering counsel to clients who are trying to avoid a controversy. We are constantly involved in sophisticated negotiations and take pride in resolving problems, issues and challenges for individuals and businesses involved in the oil, gas and energy industry.
