I am excited by the possibilities ahead for our clients, and this recognition by Chambers reflects the confidence placed in us by our clients to help them navigate this transition.”

Chambers said “Vinson & Elkins is a powerhouse across the various energy sectors. From its deep roots in the oil and gas industry to more recent strength in renewable energy, the firm is truly a market leader.”
