WASHINGTON, D.C. – Bracewell LLP, a leading law and government relations firm, is pleased to announce that Hans P. Dyke has joined the firm’s Washington, D.C. office as a partner in the energy practice. Dyke joins Bracewell from Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer.
“Hans is a terrific addition to the firm and our market-leading energy practice,” said Bracewell Managing Partner Gregory M. Bopp. “He is a well-known and talented lawyer with extensive experience in electric power and midstream transactions. We are delighted to welcome him to the firm.”
Dyke advises clients on transactions in both the electric power and oil & gas midstream space, as well as on transactions involving energy intensive industries such as data storage. Transactions on which Dyke routinely advises include mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, divestitures, equity investments and financings. His clients have included investor clubs, global chemical and energy companies and tax equity investors.
“Hans’ transactional experience in energy and energy-related industries will be an asset to our existing client base,” said Mark K. Lewis, managing partner of the firm’s Washington, D.C. office. “Likewise, the firm’s depth and breadth across the energy industry will allow Hans to better serve and grow relationships with his existing clients, many of whom are already served by Bracewell. He will be a great fit for our energy practice both here in Washington, D.C. and across the entire firm.”
“I am honored to join Bracewell’s well-respected and reputable energy practice,” said Dyke. “Bracewell is a leader in the energy sector, and I look forward to working with this talented group.”
Hans joins Bracewell following the arrival of Robert J. Wagman Jr. who joined the firm’s Washington, D.C. office in March to build out the firm’s government contracts practice, consistent with Bracewell’s strategy to grow in Washington, D.C. with a focus on energy and government related practices.
Dyke earned his undergraduate degree from Carthage College, a Master of the Arts degree from Marquette University and his law degree from Washington and Lee University School of Law, where he has served as adjunct professor.
