Global legal practice Norton Rose Fulbright has added three energy transactions lawyers to its Houston office. Partners John Mauel and Julie Mayo, along with senior counsel Jay Stiffler, bring nearly 50 years of combined experience, representing international companies in major energy and infrastructure projects.
Mauel, Mayo and Stiffler join Norton Rose Fulbright from Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, where they worked together for eight years. The three lawyers focus on the development, financing, acquisition, and disposition of energy and infrastructure projects, ranging from oil and gas to LNG to electric power.
Linda Addison, US managing partner, Norton Rose Fulbright, said, “Experienced in the purchase and sale of both oil and gas properties and midstream assets, the arriving group’s knowledge also covers a full range of oil and gas exploration and development agreements, such as leases, joint operating agreements, production sharing agreements, and drilling contracts. They have been actively involved in the evolving global LNG industry, and their experience with LNG projects and major transactions includes liquefaction and receiving terminals, associated pipeline facilities, US LNG export projects, US natural gas procurement, and LNG sale and purchase agreements.”
Mauel received his Juris Doctor (JD) degree from the University of Notre Dame Law School and his Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree from Harvard University. Mayo earned her JD degree from the University of Texas Law School after receiving her BA degree and Master of Public Health degree from Emory University. Stiffler acquired his JD degree from Case Western Reserve University School of Law and his BA degree from the University of Chicago.
