Within: Capital markets: equity offerings

Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP’s capital markets team is now led jointly by Michael O’Leary and Austin managing partner Matthew Lyons, following the departure of former co-head David Buck - and three other capital markets partners - to Sidley Austin LLP. The team leverages the firm’s signature strength in oil and gas matters to specialize in advising issuers and managers on equity offerings in the energy space, and it also secures a significant volume of real estate deals. Highlight manager-side transactions included O’Leary and Charlie Ofner advising the underwriters on Hess Midstream Partner’s $390.9m IPO, while Courtney Cochran Butler assisted the underwriters with Buckeye Partners’ $588.7m equity offering. Recent issuer clients include Just Energy Group, NGL Energy Partners and TETRA Technologies. Jordan Hirsch and Melinda Brunger are also recommended. Stephanie Beauvais and Meredith Mouer left for in-house positions at Shell and Tellurian respectively. Named attorneys operate from Houston, unless otherwise stated.
