NEW YORK – Aug. 19, 2019 – Four Energy attorneys from global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP are recognized in the The Legal 500 2019 U.S. Guide. The firm’s Energy Practice continues to increasingly receive recognition from Legal 500, listed for three energy practice areas in 2019. For the first time, the Guide recognized the firm in Energy Regulation: Conventional Power, while continuing to recommend the firm in Energy Regulation: Oil and Gas and Energy Transactions: Oil and Gas.

According to the publisher, the Guide’s acknowledgements recognize practice area teams and practitioners who are “providing the most cutting edge and innovative advice to corporate counsel.” The recognitions are based on feedback from 300,000 clients worldwide, law firm submissions, and interviews with private practice lawyers, in addition to Legal 500’s independent research in the legal market.

The following energy attorneys are recognized in the Guide, in the listed practice areas:

“This recognition by The Legal 500 is a testament to the growth and breadth of experience of our Energy practice group as a whole. This is important in and of itself, and also further distinguishes us as we simultaneously grow our private equity and strategic M&A practices, given the level of interest shown by our fund clients in the energy and infrastructure asset class,” said Richard A. Rosenbaum, Greenberg Traurig’s Executive Chairman.
