Paul Hastings Launches Interdisciplinary Energy Transition & Infrastructure Team to Help Clients Prepare for Low-Carbon Future

June 09, 2021

Houston and New York – Paul Hastings LLP, a leading global law firm, announced today the launch of its global Energy Transition & Infrastructure team. The interdisciplinary team will advise energy industry participants and investors, guiding them in their pursuit of growth while helping them navigate the fundamental changes reshaping the energy landscape, as the world works toward a low-carbon future. The Energy Transition & Infrastructure Team brings together lawyers from across the firm’s global platform with deep experience in M&A, private equity, finance, and regulatory issues.

“With a shift toward new technologies and investors who prioritize Environmental, Social, and Governance considerations as a factor for capital deployment, the energy sector is in the early innings of a transformation that impacts our clients throughout the energy value chain, as well as generalist investors,” said Kfir Abutbul, Houston-based co-chair of the Energy Transition & Infrastructure team at Paul Hastings. “We are poised to help clients uncover opportunities in the evolving energy mix and take advantage of investments in new technologies that will address climate change.”

“Our multidisciplinary Team brings together Paul Hastings’ leading expertise across practices and geographies to provide forward-looking, commercially-oriented legal advice to clients preparing for—and in many cases creating—the energy sector of the future,” said Bob Kartheiser, New York-based co-chair of the Energy Transition and Infrastructure team. “The sector’s accelerating, profound change generates uncertainty, but also provides tremendous new pathways for growth.”

 Paul Hastings expects to add to its Energy Transition and Infrastructure Team in Houston, New York, and London in the coming months.

At Paul Hastings, our purpose is clear — to help our clients and people navigate new paths to growth. With a strong presence throughout Asia, Europe, Latin America, and the U.S., Paul Hastings is recognized as one of the world’s most innovative global law firms.
