Bracewell LLP has snagged yet another partner from Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP with the addition of veteran energy finance attorney Todd W. Eckland to its New York office, the firm announced Thursday.
Eckland, who started in his new role over Labor Day weekend, has more than three decades of experience in guiding investment banks and companies in a variety of capital markets transactions, with a particular emphasis on the energy, technology and life sciences arenas, the firm said.
After spending his entire career at Pillsbury, Eckland said that while his new firm's pedigree in the energy sector is second to none, the extra push that led him to Bracewell was the opportunity to reunite with several former Pillsbury colleagues, including Catherine Hood and J. Anthony Terrell, who both made the jump over the summer.
“Bracewell is quite plainly unmatched in the depth of its experience in the energy and finance sectors, so that intrigued me,” he said.
