Joel H. MackLatham & Watkins LLP

The sizeable environmental transactional team at Latham & Watkins LLP fields sector-specialist expertise in highly-regulated industries, and possesses a loyal following of blue-chip corporations and financial institutions engaged in high-value deals in an array of sectors, including chemicals, energy and manufacturing. High-end real estate and portfolio deals are other areas of activity for the team which is highly sought after by private equity players given its ability to provide sophisticated environmental law advice in the context of global transactions, ranging from M&A and corporate financing to capital markets, project finance and insurance transactions. The department, which is recognised for its thorough national coverage, is led by four practitioners: New York-based Jean-Philippe Brisson  and Christopher Norton  in Orange County oversee the regulatory and transactional group, while James L. Arnone  in Los Angeles and Janice M. Schneider  in Washington DC jointly head the environment, land and resources department. Brisson brings to the table a strong commercial and transactional background, standing out for his experience of private equity deals and climate change matters. Sitting in DC, James R. Barrett  is a leading figure in the market; he is a name to note for transactional mandates in the energy and oil and gas sectors. Based in Houston, Joel H. Mack  plays a key role in nearly every environmental transactional matter in the firm’s Texas office, demonstrating particular knowledge in the energy, chemical and mining industries. Joshua Marnitz is a contact in LA for environmental issues across the energy and infrastructure sectors. The firm recently strengthened its DC offering with the addition of Betty Huber to the team; she joined from Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP and brings longstanding transactional experience on ESG issues facing businesses and investors.
