Stephanie CocoVinson & Elkins LLP

Vinson & Elkins LLP ’s international construction group is overseen by Nick Henchie from the firm’s London office. However, Ferguson McNiel – known for his broad litigation handling – and Kaam Sahely – an infrastructure and finance specialist – lead a ‘highly-skilled and seriously client-focused‘ US department in Houston. One of the team’s main strengths lies in its ‘ability to find viable legal solutions to complex commercial and technical topics‘, during public and energy sector work. To this end, Sahely is assisting Gulf Coast Ammonia with their $800m hydrogen-based ammonia production facility in Texas, with backing from ‘very good lawyer, but even better shepherd of projectsAlan Alexander and senior associate Stephanie Coco. Mark Brasher and Dallas-based Mark Early are representing Texas Central Partners in the development and construction of a $20 billion high-speed rail line between the DFW Metroplex and Houston, featuring an Italian contractor and Japanese technology consortium, alongside the intended domestic operator.
