Laura J McMahon has joined BakerHostetler as a partner in the firm’s corporate and energy practices based in the Houston office.
She comes to BakerHostetler from Norton Rose Fulbright, where she co-chaired the Latin America practice group.
McMahon joins the firm just weeks after the Denver office arrival of Poe Leggette and team, also from Norton Rose.
McMahon brings more than 20 years of experience counselling global clients, headquartered in and outside the US, on sophisticated matters including capital markets, securities compliance, corporate governance, mergers and acquisitions and joint ventures, particularly in the midstream master limited partnerships (MLPs) and oilfield services areas.
In the past six years, she has facilitated more than USD8.8 billion in combined gross proceeds in debt and equity offerings. During that same period, McMahon completed acquisition, disposition, and joint venture transactions totalling more than USD3.2 billion.
She represents clients in the energy, infrastructure, mining and commodities sectors, as well as other industries.
“At a time when the Mexican energy sector is opening to upstream investments, Laura’s unique skills will be invaluable to the firm’s energy clients,” says Leggette, new co-chair of BakerHostetler’s national energy and shale practice. “We have made huge strides in the last few months to continue to grow the firm’s national reputation in the energy space, and Laura will greatly contribute to that effort given her skillset and geographic location in the world’s energy capital.”
“Joining BakerHostetler is a unique opportunity. I hold this firm in high regard for its collaboration within the organisation to benefit the firm’s clients,” says McMahon. “I look forward to working with teams across the firm to achieve successful transactions for our clients here and outside the US.”
