Gislar Donnenberg, a Partner in Locke Lord’s Capital Markets Section with extensive experience in the energy sector, was featured in Law360 after joining the Firm. He credited Locke Lord’s established national capital markets practice and a leading midstream practice as a “great fit” for him. Donnenberg said he would continue to focus largely on energy at Locke Lord, which is a leading player in the domestic energy market.
Commenting on the current environment, Donnenberg noted the energy industry regularly goes through cycles and that right now he is helping clients restructure their investments and simplify their structures. "Public M&A in the energy space has significantly heated up recently, which means people have come to an agreement about what they expect their assets to be worth on a going forward basis and that's really the first step to move into a future IPO market," he said. "There is just going to be a lot more work. There are also new structures that have just recently been established in the market such as direct listings."
