Steve Gill and Jeremy Marwell Named 2018 Law360 MVPs


Vinson & Elkins partners Steve Gill and Jeremy Marwell have been selected by Law360 as 2018 MVPs in the energy and environmental categories, respectively.

This marks Gill’s second consecutive year as an energy MVP and Marwell’s first year to be recognized as part of Law360’s MVP series. Both attorneys were previously named Rising Stars by the publication.

Among only five attorneys named in the energy category, Gill is lauded in a profile by Law360 for wielding “vast experience in the energy space this year to keep intense competition at bay as lawyers from other big-name firms swoop into Houston and try to grab market share.”

Gill’s recent notable transactions include advising RSP Permian in its $9.5 billion sale to Concho Resources, creating the largest unconventional shale producer in the Permian Basin, Energy Transfer Partners in the $60 billion merger with Energy Transfer Equity in a unit-for-unit exchange and Denbury Resources Inc. in its $1.7 billion agreement to acquire Penn Virginia Corporation.

When asked by Law360 what motivates him, Gill cites his desire to be remembered as one of the best M&A attorneys of his generation. “It’s that competitive drive, that’s what fuels me,” he said.

As one of five attorneys named in the environmental category, Marwell is commended for his role as lead appellate counsel for several pipeline and industrial clients involved in high stakes disputes at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.

Law360 highlighted several of those matters, including a successful challenge to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s solid waste recycling rule and Marwell’s defense of two major U.S. pipeline projects while fending off an attack on the constitutionality of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s pipeline approval process.

“I’m very proud of the team that we’ve built here at V&E, which combines, I think, great lawyers in appellate, environmental and for these pipeline projects, the energy regulatory field, all of which really just have to work seamlessly together throughout the project development but also then the litigation phase,” Marwell told Law360.
