Established in energetic Houston, which is the base of his prestigious practice, Charles Vethan is the managing partner of the Vethan Law Firm, P.C. (VLF), with its main office in Houston and now a second office in San Antonio, Texas.
In planting roots in New Braunfels, he shifted gears from the fast-paced life of a Houstonian to cruise along winding country roads in a grassroots effort to help enterprising spirits attain and secure the American dream.
Versed in the intricacies of oil and gas litigation, Vethan strives to protect aggressively growing privately held companies in the energy sector by assisting them with thorny legal matters. Committed to sustaining the Eagle Ford Shale economy and ensuring this region’s foothold in the global market as an independent player, Vethan describes his livelihood as all-consuming.
Vethan says, “We are here to help companies protect their intellectual property and represent them in ‘bet the business litigation.’ What that means”, explains Vethan, is that at the end of the fight, only one of the parties – typically a business or shareholder – is left standing. “The stakes are high. The pace is ridiculously frenetic. And I wouldn’t have it any other way,” says Vethan. “We entered this market with a highly focused skill set. The last year and a half, we have really pushed to make sure companies know that we are here, and understand what we do. We can service them, we can partner with them, and we can act as their shield or their sword as they need it.”
Vethan is AV Preeminent rated by Martindale Hubbell and is also board certified in consumer and commercial law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Vethan has the education, credentials and experience, proving that he is a respected, trusted, in-demand attorney, instrumental in helping businesses in various industries. His area of practice is in complex trials in the United States federal district courts and state courts involving intellectual property, shareholder/partnership disputes, executive employment litigation, non-compete agreements, primarily in the energy and tech sectors.
Involved in the communities he serves, Vethan is unfaltering in paying it forward. During a recent holiday gala hosted by VLF at the Hotel Valencia Riverwalk in San Antonio, Vethan and his team, from Houston and San Antonio collected toys for the Brooke Army Medical Center, Pediatrics Unit. Vethan’s clients, colleagues and dignitaries from San Antonio, Houston, North Dakota and Canada attended to support the event.
This year, the firm plans to extend to Los Angeles, California.
