Hilary Soileau

Hilary Soileau is an associate in the firm’s Houston office, where she is a member of the Oil and Gas practice group. Hilary’s practice focuses on the development of energy projects globally, guiding clients through the legal, operational, and commercial issues that arise from origination through operation. She has represented clients in energy services, logistics, and project development contract negotiations across the United States, Australia, Asia, and Africa.

Hilary came to the transactional practice with a breadth of litigation and dispute resolution experience, which provides her a unique perspective in drafting contracts and advising on contract execution and implementation

Hilary came to the firm from a project management and engineering company in Perth, Western Australia, where she managed and negotiated contracts from tender through execution for energy development across Australia and Africa. Prior to that, Hilary worked as a client contracts analyst for a global energy technology company, drafting and negotiating contracts for services to oil and gas, mining, hydrogen, ammonia, geothermal, and carbon capture and sequestration projects across Australasia.

Before transitioning to the commercial side of the energy industry, Hilary spent three years at a full-service oil and gas law firm in Houston, Texas, where she handled matters related to domestic onshore and offshore upstream, midstream, and downstream operations.

In 2021, Hilary completed an Australian Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety, where she focused on corporate policy reform, implementation, and compliance; incident investigation and regulatory reporting; and risk identification and prevention.
