As an energy finance lawyer at Bracewell LLP, Kate Day represents banks and energy companies in debt transactions. She typically advises on bank and other private debt, and she also works in hedging and derivatives.
“Right now, I’m representing an agent bank that has put together a syndicate of other banks to provide a reserve-based loan facility to an E&P company,” Day says. “I am also working on credit facilities in the midstream, oilfield service and commodities finance spaces.”
These days, given the current market conditions, she finds herself working on several restructurings, too, as she has in prior downturns. But, she says, some areas of the industry are doing better than others.
Despite the difficulties in today’s oil and gas market, Day is working in the career she always wanted.
