-- Firm continues to expand its London office
LONDON, Sept. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Andrews Kurth is pleased to announce that John Conlin, a prominent upstream oil and gas transactional lawyer, will join the firm's London office as a partner.
Conlin represents energy clients, in the UK and internationally, in cross-border upstream oil and gas mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures and related projects. His work has included advising clients on major upstream acquisitions and divestments and other E&P matters in Europe, Central Asia, Africa and throughout the Middle East.
Conlin will join Andrews Kurth from Norton Rose Fulbright, where he was a partner and co-chaired the firm's international oil and gas business group. Before entering private practice, Conlin spent five years with the independent oil and gas group Perenco as Assistant General Counsel.
"Our London office is rapidly becoming an oil and gas powerhouse," said Bob Jewell, firm managing partner. "As the need for energy development grows globally, then so does the need for sophisticated, focused and commercially expedient legal expertise to structure deals and make them happen. John is the perfect addition for that growing segment of our work."
Peter Roberts, managing partner of the London office, said Conlin's expertise further adds to the London office's offering to international energy clients.
"John has significant expertise handling major upstream transactions and projects across the globe," Roberts said. "He's a great catch and we're excited about working together as a team on a broad range of transactions and projects."
