Chris LaFollette Among Houston Business Journal’s Top Women in Energy

As part of its coverage of the role women are taking in Houston’s energy boom, the Houston Business Journal, after consulting with industry experts, named Akin Gump oil and gas practice head and Houston partner in charge Chris LaFollette among “the area’s top females in the oil and gas industry.”

The Journal notes her leadership role in the Houston office as well as her service on Akin Gump’s firmwide management committee and on the Houston office’s diversity committee.  LaFollette’s service as a director of the Houston World Affairs Council and for the National Association of Corporate Directors’ Houston chapter and the Texas General Counsel Forum is also featured.

LaFollette has received several recognitions in recent months, including as a Law360 Female Powerbroker and as one of the “movers and shakers” in the energy field in Houston Business Journal’s 2013-2014 Who’s Who in Energy.
