Large Texas law firms, with their unmatched expertise in the energy sector, have been expanding in London.

Haynes and Boone, which opened its London office in 2016, recently hired a prominent London-based oil and gas and renewables partner from Addleshaw Goddard. Baker Botts, whose client list in London includes a number of major energy companies, hired two Morgan Lewis & Bockius partners earlier this year – one of who is an energy transaction specialist.

And Locke Lord has added about half a dozen lawyers in London during the past 18 months, including international arbitration partner Paul Neufeld, who has done work for clients in the energy industry, while Vinson & Elkins, which handles a variety of specialisations from London, including disputes, international arbitration, energy transactions and projects and M&A, is also in expansion mode.
