Bradley W. Welsh Joins Crowe & Dunlevy

Firm expands oil and gas practice in Tulsa 

Tulsa, Okla. – Experienced oil and gas attorney Brad Welsh has joined Crowe & Dunlevy as a shareholder in the firm’s Tulsa office. 

Welsh has more than 20 years of energy law experience, representing upstream and midstream oil and gas companies in litigation and appellate matters. His practice often involves complex energy-related matters and putative class actions, extending from post-production costs to statutory interest obligations and off-lease fuel use. He is also particularly knowledgeable concerning Gas Purchase Agreements and other marketing arrangements, and often handles production in paying quantities and related litigation concerning lease viability. He also has experience assisting clients in wind and water law matters and has handled numerous administrative appeals involving agencies within the U.S. Department of the Interior.  

“Brad brings twenty-plus years of experience litigating complex energy issues,” said Dale Cottingham, Co-chair of the firm’s Energy, Environment, and Natural Resources Practice Group. “From gas processing issues to claims of royalty underpayment, he has a keen understanding of basic oil and gas lease provisions. A professor in economics at the University of Oklahoma before going to law school at the University of Texas, he adds strength to our burgeoning Energy practice. He is a welcome addition.”  

Walsh received his juris doctor from the University of Texas School of Law where he served as an Articles Editor for the Texas Law Review. He holds a Masters of Arts in Economics from the University of Oklahoma.
