Jean-Philippe Brisson  - Latham & Watkins LLP

Within: Environment: transactional

Focusing on private equity, energy, chemicals and manufacturing, and working closely with the firm’s international network, Latham & Watkins LLP is involved in high-end transactions, which recently included advising the Carlyle Group on the environmental aspects of its €10.1bn acquisition of Akzo Nobel’s specialty chemicals business. In addition, the team advised US-based power plant operator ContourGlobal on negotiations with the Government of Kosovo regarding a €1.4bn project to develop, finance, construct, own and operate a state-of-the-art lignite-fired generation facility to replace current generation. The key figure in the team is James Barrett, who co-chairs the environmental regulation and transactions practice, and acts as chair of the Washington DC environment, land and resources department. Barrett is ‘professional to a T’; he is ’diligent, commercial, and easy to get along with’. New York’s Jean-Philippe Brisson advised Leonard Green & Partners on its $2.2bn acquisition of Pro Mach, a designer, manufacturer, and seller of packaging and processing products. Also recommended is Houston-based Joel Mack, who advised Silver Run Acquisition Corporation (an energy-focused SPV of Riverstone Holdings) on its $3.8bn acquisition of Kingfisher Midstream, a private provider of midstream services, and Alta Mesa, an independent exploration and production company.
