Alerian Honors V&E with 2018 "Legal Counsel of the Year" Award

Vinson & Elkins has been named “Legal Counsel of the Year” as part of Alerian’s 2018 Ammy Awards, recognizing excellence in the North American energy infrastructure industry.

In an effort to annually celebrate the people and companies that have contributed to the emergence and understanding of Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs), MLP index and analytics provider Alerian launched the Alerian MLP Awards, or Ammys. The selection of finalists is nomination-driven, with greater weight given to nominations by peers/competitors or Ammy Hall of Fame inductees. V&E was among 19 individuals and companies honored with Ammys this year.

V&E has extensive experience in the MLP space and a historical understanding of the structural development of MLPs. Our lawyers have experience with virtually all industries in which MLPs are active today, and in the past decade have advised on two thirds of all natural resource and real estate MLP IPOs completed.

The Ammys were presented at a dinner in Houston on March 5, 2018. David Oelman, V&E partner and co-head of the firm’s Capital Markets and Mergers & Acquisitions practice, was among the presenters at the event.
