Vinson & Elkins LLP has a strong position within the Texas market, though its work in the debt finance space is felt across the US. Given the group’s location, it is unsurprising that the energy sector is an area of particular focus; in addition to assisting commercial banks lending to actors in the sector, the firms also represents upstream, midstream, and downstream energy companies in major syndicated financings. Brian Moss  and Erec Winandy co-lead the national team from Houston and Dallas respectively and are both experienced in  acquisition and leveraged finance as well as asset-based and reserve-based lending. Outside of Texas, the group has a New York presence which includes David Wicklund  and Brett Santoli .
