Gardere Partner John P. Melko authored the article, “Bankruptcies in Oil and Gas on the Upswing” for the Oil & Gas Financial Journal.

According to Mr. Melko, “Early casualties of a distressed industry are those that are thinly capitalized, overleveraged or who came late to the party and paid too much to enter. This cycle is no different.”
