“The majority of the collective deals and transactions we worked on were based in the energy sector where activity remained steady during the first half of the year as oil prices stabilized and the continued consolidation of the industry resulted in deals being hammered out,” said Bill Swanstrom, Vice Chair of the Firm and Co-Chair of Locke Lord’s Energy Practice. “There has been a noticeable increase in activity in the midstream market during the past few months, and it appears the deal and transactions markets will remain quite active through the end of the year and into 2016.”
