V&E Named Energy, Power and Utilities Law Firm of the Year at The 2018 Deal Awards

Vinson & Elkins has been named “Energy, Power and Utilities Law Firm of the Year” as part of The 2018 Deal Awards, recognizing the advisors and service providers who “power the deal economy.”

The inaugural awards, given out by M&A news and analysis publication The Deal, received hundreds of peer nominations, across dozens of categories. The newsroom then interviewed analysts and experts to create a shortlist of the most significant deals and dealmakers in terms of strategic vision and shareholder returns. The final winners were chosen by The Deal‘s top editors, based on a simple majority vote.

The firm was also shortlisted in several categories, including Private Equity Law Firm of the Year; Dealmaker of the Year (Lawrence Elbaum); Private Equity Lawyer of the Year (Keith Fullenweider); and Energy, Power and Utilities Lawyer of the Year (Steve Gill).

For more than a century, V&E has been a leader among energy industry legal advisors, regularly counseling clients across the globe on their most significant transactional, IPO, litigation and bankruptcy matters. Since 2010, the firm has completed more energy transactions in the U.S. and globally than any other firm, according to mergermarket.

The winners of The 2018 Deal Awards were announced June 21, 2018, at a ceremony in New York City. A full list of winners is available here
