Akin Gump hires energy and global transactions expert from Vinson & Elkins

March 21, 2012 Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld has boosted its energy and global transactions team in Houston with the hire of partner Stephen Davis from Vinson & Elkins.

Davis is an expert in the legal aspects of joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions, project financing, and other cross-border transactions.

Davis commented: “Clients all over the world look to lawyers and law firms with deep Texas roots. Houston is a natural place from which to work on matters globally, and I fully anticipate that I’ll be actively involved in developing Akin Gump’s practice globally”

Davis also predicted that there will be significant national resource development in the US in the near future: “One of my beliefs is that we should readily permit the development of our US domestic natural resources. We have a number of situations [with] limits on the amounts of oil and gas development that can occur. It would be better to have access. We should also promote projects that allow us to import energy from our closest neighbors like Canada”.
