KPW joins ConocoPhillips in supporting United Way of Greater Houston

KPW partnered with ConocoPhillip’s Legal Department for the Department’s United Way fundraiser.  ConocoPhillips has supported the United Way of Houston for almost three decades.  The United Way has an integral role in providing support to people in the Greater Houston Area affected by Hurricane Harvey.

Deb Kuchler, Sarah Iiams, Robert Guidry, Phil Wood and Nick Wise enjoyed fellowship, good Cajun food and music with our COP friends in Houston– all while supporting this worthy cause.

Janika Polk, Lee Ziffer and Deb Kuchler recently ran into Dale Earnhardt, Jr. at Hendrick Motorsports where Freightliner is prominent. We’re reminded of how important it is as outside counsel to learn the client’s business.

What’s important to each client?

What keeps a client awake at night?

How does the business run?

That’s why, on our own time and on our own nickel, we:

  • Visit the client’s operation;

  • Climb on and drive a tractor;

  • Pick up a power tool and disassemble a brake drum;

  • Swing on a personnel basket onto an oil rig;

  • Don a Tyvek suit, hard hat, goggles, ear protectors and steel-toed boots for an inspection of a chemical plant or refinery;

  • Dive into the science underlying a product liability case;

  • Learn the lingo of deepwater drilling;

  • Know how to get to the port side from starboard on a client’s vessel; and

  • Understand the sensitivities involved in the client’s environmental stewardship issues.

We are 100% in it with our clients.  When they have skin in the game, so do we.
