As a nationally recognized energy law firm, expanding its Texas footprint and opening a Dallas office was a logical next step for West Virginia-based Steptoe & Johnson PLLC. Elizabeth Cromwell, who represents upstream, midstream, and energy service companies in corporate and transactional matters, manages Steptoe & Johnson’s Dallas office which opened in 2021. When asked to take on the role as the office managing member, it was an easy decision for Cromwell because the firm is full of inspiring women leaders. Three out of the firm’s four departments are headed by women, and the immediate past CEO and the firm’s new COO are women. For Cromwell’s practice, Steptoe & Johnson is the perfect combination of platform and culture, providing a deep bench and energy industry focus while maintaining its core values, commitment to excellent client service, and family-first attitude.
