“Akin Gump, V&E and T&K Advise in Western Gas’ $1.5 Billion Acquisition”
The Woodlands-based Western Gas Partners, LP has agreed to acquire Houston-based Nuevo Midstream Partners, and Texas lawyers from five law firms are assisting in the $1.5 billion deal.
Houston corporate & securities partner Sarah McLean of Thompson & Knight is representing San Antonio and Oklahoma-based EnCap Flatrock Midstream, which is Nuevo’s private equity backer. She received assistance from Houston tax partner Roger Aksamit and Dallas corporate & securities associate Van Wiltz.
McLean and Aksamit also handled a deal this fall for EnCap Flatrock’s parent company, EnCap Investments LP, when it agreed to a $225 million investment in Sierra Oil & Gas S de RL de CV, which is Mexico’s first independent oil and gas company.
