HOUSTON, May 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- A trio of leading energy lawyers has joined Baker Botts L.L.P. in New York and Houston, bolstering the firm's reputation as the go-to law firm in the energy industry for resolving complex legal problems.
William S. Lamb and Michael W.E. Didriksen of New York and Thomas J. Moore of Houston have managed major matters for energy clients around the world at their previous firm, Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP, including mergers and acquisitions, project development and divestitures.
"Adding Tom, Bill and Mike to our firm shows that we are committed to offering the best legal talent to our clients," said Baker Botts Managing Partner Andrew M. Baker. "Our energy platform is also a strong complement for Tom, Bill and Mike to continue to develop their respective practices."
Lamb, who was co-chair of Dewey's Utilities, Power and Pipelines Global Industry Sector Group, is counsel to The AES Corporation in its sale of two gas-fired generating plants. He advises both public and private companies in mergers, acquisitions and divestitures, as well as financings. He represents bidders and targets in both negotiated and unsolicited mergers and acquisitions.
Didriksen, who was a partner in Dewey's U.S. Energy and Utilities Practice Group, represents major energy industry companies and other large corporate clients, primarily on project development, mergers and acquisitions and divestitures. His experience includes structuring transactions for both regulated and unregulated companies in the electric power and gas industries.
Moore, who served as co-chair of the energy mergers and acquisitions practice at Dewey, leads the representation of the Angola LNG project that is designed to eliminate flaring of natural gas produced in Angola's offshore oil production. Also, he led the representation of RWE in its acquisition of a 50 percent interest in Excelerate Energy, a U.S.-based international LNG trading and infrastructure company.
