Partner Martha Kammoun recently discussed joining Bracewell and some of the current energy industry trends in a feature on Law360.
Kammoun said she was attracted to Bracewell because of the firm’s energy focus. She joins Bracewell at a time when much of the energy industry is reeling from the coronavirus pandemic and the drop in oil prices. But Kammoun, who comes to Bracewell from private equity investor Starwood Energy Group, said private equity firms may be uniquely positioned to navigate the turbulence.
“Energy has been hit with a perfect storm,” she said. “Private equity, I think, is well-positioned to take advantage of opportunities: It has the dry powder, it has the expertise, and [private equity firms] are nimble – they’re able to move very quickly.”
