Following the incorporation of the legacy practice of Chadbourne & Parke LLP, Norton Rose Fulbright US LLP has significantly strengthened both its national and cross-border capabilities. In a significant cross-border matter, the group assisted BMW with Takata’s multijurisdictional bankruptcy and New York-based practice co-head Howard Seife assisted Argentina-based energy company YPF with the Chapter 11 of its wholly owned subsidiary Maxus Energy Corp. In an example of the practice’s debtor-side abilities, joint practice head Louis Strubeck, who splits his time between Dallas and New York, leads the representation of Adeptus Health and 139 affiliates in Chapter 11 cases. The team also acted for NextEra Energy on its intended $18.7bn acquisition of Energy Future Holdings, and continues to represent the company in a $275m claim for termination of the merger agreement after Energy Future Holdings entered into an alternative agreement with Sempra Energy. Senior counsel Howard Beltzer joined the New York office from Mayer Brown.
