V&E’s reputation as a leader in energy
extends to M&A, where we represent clients involved in all facets of the
energy and natural resources industry. A firm client recently shared with Chambers USA, “For large-cap Energy sector deals, [V&E] virtually stands alone.” (2019) We have acted as a legal advisor in
more global energy M&A deals over the last five years than any other law
firm, according to Mergermarket (2014-2018). We have also been involved in several of the most transformative international
oil and gas asset and joint venture transactions to date.
The firm’s M&A practice has extensive experience with both friendly and hostile M&A transactions involving public companies. Our team of seasoned and responsive M&A attorneys, with the support of world-class subject matter experts, is able to negotiate and complete transactions at the rapid pace that public company deals necessitate.
