Law360 named Norton Rose Fulbright one of its 2017 Texas Powerhouse firms, as the publication touted the "five law firms that stand out in the Lone Star State for their prowess in guiding clients through tens of billions of dollars' worth of deals." Also included in the top five are Baker Botts, Haynes and Boone, Latham & Watkins and Vinson & Elkins.
The Powerhouse firms are recognized for their ability "to advise major energy players as they traded stakes in oil and gas plays, as energy companies still recovering from the plunge in oil prices decided to join forces, and as initial public offerings raised cash for energy producers."
We are specifically noted for our representation in the US$2 billion joint venture of Enbridge Energy Partners LP with Marathon Petroleum Corp. for a stake in Bakken Shale pipeline interests, and our representation of The Golf Channel Inc., which led to a ruling which protects innocent merchants in arm's length transactions.
In a separate feature story, Law360 highlighted our litigation, IP and transactional strengths, including commentary from US Head of Dispute Resolution and Litigation Richard Krumholz, US Head of Intellectual Property Gina Shishima and US Head of Business Practice Gene Lewis.
The article also highlights our "international and global strengths," which help distinguish Norton Rose Fulbright from competitors, as our "deep base of knowledge and experience in Texas makes it an attractive firm for international energy companies as they pursue operations and acquisitions in the US."
"Complemented by savvy business and transactional lawyers, the firm serves energy, health care, intellectual property, technology, life sciences, financial services and banking clients in Texas to great acclaim," the article stated.
