Douglas McWilliams, head of the equity capital markets practice at Vinson & Elkins in Houston, has become a focal point of controversy following a boating accident that took place on May 10, according to the Austin American-Statesman.

The newspaper reported this week that after an outing near Austin, Texas, last month, McWilliams offered to ferry a group of lawyers from his firm on his boat.

The late-night crash seriously injured two passengers.
