Following Shearman & Sterling’s recent expansion in Texas with a new Dallas office, the firm welcomed partner Nathan Meredith, to the team.
Nathan’s practice is focused on mergers and acquisitions and private equity transactions with a particular emphasis on upstream and midstream oil and gas. He regularly represents clients in connection with acquisitions and divestitures, portfolio company investments, joint ventures and private equity funding arrangements.
We believe his expertise will be highly complementary to our growing private equity presence in Texas and globally, especially in the energy and infrastructure industries. He joins the firm from Thompson & Knight.
“Nathan is a perfect fit for our Dallas team and will be key in our overall global expansion in private equity. Dallas itself is quickly becoming a major private equity hub, with hundreds of firms headquartered there. Moreover, his expertise in energy and infrastructure will be a great complement to our Houston-based and global energy teams,” said David Beveridge, Senior Partner at Shearman & Sterling.
Nathan will join Financial Restructuring & Insolvency practice partners Luckey McDowell and Ian Roberts, who joined us last year; and Tax practice partner Ryan Bray, who recently moved to Texas from our Menlo Park office. They are joined by Scott Cohen, Alain Dermarkar and Robert Cardone, who recently arrived at the firm from Jones Day.
Shearman & Sterling opened its Austin office in March 2018 and its Houston office in May 2018 and now has over 60 lawyers in Texas, including 25 partners. The firm has 24 offices worldwide.
