CHICAGO � Mayer Brown has rehired Stephen F. Gates, former general counsel at ConocoPhillips Co., in its Houston office as special counsel in its corporate practice group with a focus on energy issues. Gates, 61, was a partner in the firm’s Chicago office for two years before he moved to ConocoPhillips in 2003, he said. At ConocoPhillips, he oversaw a law department of about 130 attorneys worldwide. Prior to his earlier stint at the firm, Gates spent 23 years in top executive posts at BP plc; Amoco, which was acquired by BP; and the oil field service and chemical company FMC Corp. Gates, a Florida native who spent the bulk of his career in Chicago, would also like to work in the area of mediation and arbitration for Mayer Brown clients and increase his civic and pro bono involvement, he said. “I’m looking forward to the chance to apply that experience broadly,” Gates said.
