Andrews Kurth Kenyon LLP’s practice grew through the recruitment of Houston-based oil and gas specialists Christopher Richardson and Charlie Ofner from Mubadala Petroleum and Oasis Petroleum respectively. The team excels in energy sector deals; it acted for LRR Energy in its acquisition of a subsidiary of Vanguard Natural Resources and advised Energy Transfer Partners on its acquisition of certain interests in PennTex Midstream Partners. It also advises in other sectors, such as assisting specialty pharmacy Avita Drugs with its sale to Tailwind Capital portfolio company Long’s Drugs and advising cloud-based software company Gravitant on its sale to IBM. Recent large deal highlights include advising Archer Well Company on its disposition of outstanding equity interests in certain North American subsidiaries; representing LDR Holding Corporation in its approximately $1.1bn sale to Zimmer Biomet Holdings; and advising Chelsea Petroleum Products Holdings, an affiliate of ArcLight Capital, on its purchase of Gulf Oil Limited Partnership and a related business. Houston-based David Buck and Michael O’Leary head the department. Buck has particular experience with energy, maritime transportation, restaurant, aviation and death care companies; and O’Leary’s representative experience includes acting as counsel to a publicly traded master limited partnership (MLP) in its acquisition of natural gas liquid pipelines and related assets. Other recommended Houston advisers are John Clutterbuck, Jon Daly, Melinda Brunger, Hal Haltom Jr, Henry Havre and firm managing partner Robert Jewell.
