Porter Hedges represents a broad spectrum of private equity funds, mezzanine investment funds, and other investment vehicles on matters such as acquisitions, financings, exit transactions, and many others. We represent private equity firms and their respective portfolio companies from their initial portfolio investment, through the tuck-in investments, divestments and recapitalizations, to the portfolio companies’ ultimate exit transaction, whether by disposition or public offering. 

We advise and represent clients on investment transactions and exit strategies of all kinds, including:

We also work with management teams and portfolio companies seeking private equity funding for their businesses. And while we focus on M&A activities, we also advise private equity clients on legal and regulatory matters, such as securities regulations, tax, and employee benefit plan regulations, and more.

Energy Industry Leadership

Our energy private equity attorneys advise majors, independents, and a range of companies across the upstream, midstream, and downstream sectors throughout the lifecycle of a fund. Transactions have included fund formation for acquiring, operating, and developing conventional natural gas reserves in North America, sale of upstream and midstream oil and gas assets in shale plays, and mezzanine project debt and project equity investments in exploration and production and midstream projects. Our attorneys also have extensive experience with emerging and unconventional energy resources and understand the opportunities and challenges that companies face in this arena.
