Colleen Migl, Shareholder

The daughter of a modern-day wildcatter and a day trader, both of whom are business owners, Colleen Migl grew up in Houston surrounded by business risk and the “ups and downs” of the oil and gas industry. So, it is no surprise she is considered very business-minded when it comes to advising her clients, whether it is about the acquisition of another company, the purchase of real estate, the negotiation of a commercial lease, or the setting up of a new business venture.

While in law school, Colleen gained valuable experience interning with the second largest CPA firm in the United States, the federal government, and a national non-profit organization. Colleen spent her last year of law school as a Shapiro Fellow at the Securities and Exchange Commission. While there, she worked on high-profile securities litigation cases and investigations, and in some cases right alongside the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Department of Justice, and the Internal Revenue Service. Upon graduation from law school, Colleen went to work for a major accounting firm where she assisted major Houston oil and gas clients with international taxation transactions.

Mrs. Migl received her Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting and General Business from Texas Tech University. Upon graduation, she was awarded “highest ranking graduate” from the Rawls College of Business. After completing her undergraduate studies, she attended The George Washington University Law School where she received her Juris Doctorate in 2014. Upon graduation with her law degree, Ms. Migl was awarded the Presidential Volunteer Service Award for her extensive pro bono work with the homeless and unemployed in the heart of Washington, D.C.

While handling multiple large acquisitions for a Fortune 200 company at the same time, Colleen recently went back to school to obtain her L.L.M. and a Certificate in International Taxation from Georgetown University. Upon graduation, she was once again recognized for pro bono work in her local community.
