Mark Christiansen, a vice chair of the IEL’s advisory board and one of the co-chairs of this year’s Energy Litigation Conference in the fall, has joined Oklahoma’s largest law firm, McAfee & Taft in Oklahoma City. Mark, a long term supporter of the IEL and also a member of the CAIL board of trustees, was formerly a partner in the firm of Crowe and Dunlevy.
Commenting on his move, Mark said, “McAfee & Taft is the only Oklahoma law firm on the National Law Journal's list of the 250 largest law firms in the U.S. (with the rank of 218 on the 2012 NLJ list). The firm has established itself as a major regional law firm with the scope, depth and quality it offers in all the key legal practice areas, with a particularly strong tradition in serving clients in the oil and gas industry. I look forward to being a part of McAfee & Taft's future advancement."
