Law360 Names V&E a 2017 Texas Powerhouse

Published: 10-02-2017

Vinson & Elkins has once again been named a Texas Powerhouse by Law360, in recognition of the firm’s outstanding corporate and litigation successes over the past year.

V&E is among just five firms throughout the state honored by Law360 for its “prowess in guiding clients through tens of billions of dollars’ worth of deals […] and for scoring major litigation victories for a broad spectrum of clients in state and federal trial and appellate courts.”

In an article profiling the firm, Law360 highlights V&E’s representation of Energy Transfer Equity, LP in a $38 billion merger dispute with The Williams Companies and a landmark Texas Supreme Court decision the firm secured for Denbury Resources, Inc., which set important precedent about how pipeline companies qualify for common carrier status with the power of eminent domain.

On the corporate side, Law360 spotlighted several key transactional matters the firm handled including V&E’s representation of: Memorial Resource Development Corp. in its $4.2 billion merger with Range Resources Corp; Double Eagle Energy Permian LLC in a $2.8 billion sale of undeveloped acreage and oil and gas producing properties in the Midland Basin to Parsley Energy Inc.; and Brigham Resources LLC in a $2.43 billion sale of its assets to Diamondback Energy Inc.

This is the second time Law360 has selected Regional Powerhouses; V&E was also named to the inaugural list in 2015.
