Murchison Law Firm Adds Experienced Energy Industry Attorney

Haley O’Neill to support growing legal and regulatory needs of the firm’s clients 

DALLAS — The Murchison Law Firm has added experienced energy industry attorney Haley O’Neil to support the firm’s growing representation of pipeline clients in all aspects of their business.  


Ms. O’Neill joins the firm after more than five years as in-house counsel for Koch Industries affiliate Flint Hills Resources, a leading refining and pipeline company with over 4,000 miles of pipeline infrastructure and operations, primarily in the Midwest. At Flint Hills, she advised on all of the company’s federal and state matters involving safety, compliance, inspection, and regulations. Ms. O’Neill also served as lead attorney and advisor for new pipeline planning and construction for Flint Hills.  


Prior to that, she served for more than five years as senior counsel for Koch, the second-largest privately held company in the United States. In that role, she focused on federal regulatory compliance for pipeline operations and advising on other business and commercial matters. 


“Haley’s experience will be invaluable for our clients, many of which are taking part in a significant increase in pipeline projects and infrastructure across the nation,” says firm founder Vince Murchison. “She has a thorough knowledge of the industry’s day-to-day operating environment and complex regulatory issues, and we’re pleased to have her join the team.”   


Ms. O’Neill began her career with the Missouri-based firm of Andereck Evans LLC, and during her seven-year tenure handled a large civil defense caseload where she sat as first-chair on multiple jury trials. During this time, she also served as outside general counsel for multiple Missouri electric cooperatives, managing right-of-way acquisitions, eminent domain proceedings and litigation. 


She earned her law degree from the University of Missouri School of Law, with an undergraduate degree from the University of Central Missouri.  


The Murchison Law Firm PLLC represents pipeline clients in all aspects of their business, offering owners and operators an unparalleled understanding of the pipeline industry in the areas of regulatory matters, operations, transactions, project development, pipeline-related environmental matters and maintenance, dispute resolution, risk assessment, and integrity management.
