Bracewell’s Travis Counts discussed with the Texas Lawyer his move to Bracewell and the energy outlook as the economy recovers from the COVID-19 downturn.
Counts, who served as senior vice president, general counsel and corporate secretary at Concho Resources before joining Bracewell, said he transitioned out of his GC position with Concho after the company was acquired by ConocoPhillips in January. He stayed on in a consulting role with ConocoPhillips that ended in June.
Thinking about how he wanted to practice law over the next few years, Counts focused on firms he’s worked with over the last few years. Bracewell, he said, quickly came to the top.
Counts will split his time between Houston and Midland, where he’s lived for the last nine years, and sees “tremendous opportunity” to pick up clients in the Permian Basin.
