Based mainly in Houston and New York, Bracewell LLP is especially recommended for its excellent advice to borrowers and lenders in the downstream, mid-stream and upstream energy industry. On the lender side, the firm has a good relationship with Wells Fargo Bank, which it advised on a $3bn unsecured revolving credit facility to National Oilwell Varco. Another highlight was advising JPMorgan Chase on a $1bn facility to Caerus Operating. On the borrower front it advised Enterprise Products Operating on two separate revolving facilities with a combined value of $5.5bn. Beyond the energy sector, the firm also advised the NBA’s San Antonio Spurs on a $200m financing. Dewey Gonsoulin heads the highly rated team, which boasts key individuals, including Robin Miles, Rebecca Keep and the recently promoted Jeris Brunette. In Houston, Stephanie Song, Kate Day, Heather Brown, Dale Smith, and Mark Holmes are all recommended.
