Norton Rose Fulbright was recently focused on growing its corporate and M&A capabilities in New York, Houston, San Francisco and Los Angeles, with the adding of lateral partners and non-partners. The team advises a vast range of buyers, sellers, financial investors, and investment banks on domestic and cross-border M&A in the public and private sphere, including disposals, transactions, regulatory matters, corporate governance, shareholder activism and general commercial and corporate advisory issues. Dallas’ Glen Hettinger is corporate, M&A and securities head and his industry expertise crosses retail, energy, asset management, banking, hi-tech and gaming; Houston-based Gene Lewis is US business practice head; and Sheldon Nussbaum co-chairs the corporate, banking and business department in the New York office. New York co-partner-in-charge Steve Suzzan advised (alongside the firm’s London office) a gold mining business on its merger with another gold mining company; also in New York, Charles Hord III assisted an infrastructure private equity firm with the acquisition of electric power generation and distribution businesses; Kessar Nashat acted for an electric power company in its acquisition of power generation assets; and David Barrett, who has extensive experience with transactions involving financial institutions, financial services firms and fintech businesses, advised a private equity firm on the sale of all its ownership interests in an insurance broker. The New York office also acted for an energy company, on the acquisition of an oil sands entity and Dallas’ Bryn Sappington advised an oil and gas exploration and production company on its merger with another oil and gas company. Brian Fenske is a key Houston practitioner.
