At Hinkle Shanor LLP, they are proud to hold the distinction of being one of the largest and most established law firms in the Southwest. The firm traces its roots back to the first law firm in the Pecos Valley area of New Mexico. Founded in Roswell in 1888, they have undergone extensive evolution over the course of more than a century while retaining their proud heritage.
The firm’s growth has been shaped by the oil- and gas-rich region they serve in the Permian Basin. New Mexico’s oil boom in the 1920s led to the firm’s representation of Humble Oil & Refining Co. (now ExxonMobil) and other natural resources companies. Members of their firm were pioneers in crafting the state’s oil, gas and water legislation, much of which remains in effect today.
The firm remains rooted in a legacy of excellence spanning more than 125 years. Their legal team consists of experienced, dedicated practitioners who excel in their fields. Their attorneys possess the industry insight necessary for meeting the diverse legal needs of their clientele.
The firm’s geographic birthplace in the Pecos Valley and Permian Basin continues to drive their stability and success. Environmental and natural resources law remain core practice areas. They house a premier oil and gas practice serving clients throughout New Mexico. They also serve business and government clients in a broad range of civil practice areas.
Our lawyers provide innovative legal solutions for individuals, businesses and government entities across the Southwest. They also partner with in-house counsel for companies nationwide.
