Chambers USA 2017 Ranks Vinson & Elkins in 33 Practice Areas and Recognizes 81 V&E Attorneys

Published: 05-26-2017

The 2017 edition of Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business recognizes Vinson & Elkins as a leading law firm in 33 practice areas and selects 81 V&E attorneys as leading individuals.

V&E is listed as a Band 1 firm in eight categories in 2017 – Nationwide Energy: Oil & Gas (Transactional); Nationwide Energy: Oil & Gas (Regulatory/Litigation); Nationwide Projects: Oil & Gas; Texas Bankruptcy/Restructuring; Texas Capital Markets: Debt & Equity; Texas Corporate/M&A; Texas Energy: State Regulatory & Litigation (Electricity); and Texas Tax.

V&E is once again the only firm to hold national Band 1 rankings in both Oil & Gas categories – Transactional and Regulatory/Litigation. Chambers lauds V&E as a “powerhouse in the energy space, particularly excelling in oil and gas transactions and regulatory work.” Chambers also cites clients who refer to V&E’s energy group as “the best by far” and a group “that provides top-notch representation."

The firm’s litigation group is recognized by Chambers as a “well-resourced national firm with a great depth of experience in handling litigation across the full gamut of commercial areas.” One V&E client described the firm’s litigation group as “outstanding,” while another cited the group as “very professional, thorough and complete."
