Chicago-headquartered global energy law firm Mayer Brown brought William T Heller IV and Harry R Beaudry onboard its legal team in January. The pair will be based out of Mayer Brown’s Houston Corporate & Securities practice. Heller and Beaudry, formerly partners at Thompson & Knight, joined Mayer Brown for two reasons: people and platform.
“It starts with people,” Heller says. “And secondly, the platform; seeing what’s happening in the Houston market and the energy industry in general, I became a big believer in a firm that has global capabilities.”
Beaudry agrees. “I was impressed by [Mayer Brown’s] commitment to growing its presence in Houston and the energy market,” he says. Heller and Beaudry, who have a combined 30+ years experience in the energy industry, specialize in energy mergers and acquisitions, and capital markets.
