Veteran Transactional Lawyer Todd Triller Rejoins Vinson & Elkins from The Carlyle Group

Vinson & Elkins announced today that Todd Triller has rejoined the firm as a partner in the M&A practice in the New York office. Triller returns to Vinson & Elkins from The Carlyle Group, where he was Managing Director and Co-Head of Energy Credit.

He has worked with leading players in this space, including Ares Capital, Barings, EIG Global Energy Partners, The Carlyle Group, Apollo Global Management, Goldman Sachs and TPG.

“Todd has long been a member of Vinson & Elkins as both a lawyer and a valued client, and having him back during this time of strategic growth for the firm will help further support our efforts,” said Jim Fox, Vice Chair  of Vinson & Elkins. “His broad experience and commitment to excellence in M&A and structured transactions as a legal advisor and investment manager, particularly in the power, energy transition and infrastructure sectors, will be invaluable to our clients.”

Triller, who was a partner at Vinson & Elkins from 2011-2017 prior to joining The Carlyle Group, focuses on advising investment funds in complicated alternative finance transactions. He also has experience counseling private equity, credit funds and financial institutions in connection with a range of energy transactions, including renewables, sustainable fuels, power, midstream and upstream oil and gas.

“This is an incredible time to come back to Vinson & Elkins with the firm so well-positioned to help clients navigate the energy transition and infrastructure investments,” Triller said. “The firm’s outstanding reputation as a leader in private equity and finance has continued to grow, and I look forward to reuniting with my former colleagues to help our clients pursue and realize their goals.”
