Chambers' comments:

USA Ranking: Tier 2

Mitch Hertz is a highly impressive Washington, DC attorney who heads the firm's energy practice and handles transactions, litigation and regulatory issues with aplomb. Clients say: "His main strengths are his ability to negotiate and his breadth of experience." He advised BP Pipelines on its sale of various pipelines and crude oil storage to Magellan Midstream Partners. Elaine Walsh advises US and international clients on their energy assets and recently acted for NRG Energy in relation to the sale of its 4,000 MW Padoma wind development company to a subsidiary of Enel North America. Sources note her "great demeanour with client and opposition alike – she is the consummate professional."
