Hunton Lures Five Paul Hastings Energy Partners

Posted by Zach Lowe

Hawkins This just in: Hunton & Williams has lured five energy partners from Paul, Hastings, Janofsky & Walker, according to a spokesman for Paul Hastings. The group adds to Hunton's already-strong energy practice, which boasts 100 lawyers and has represented some of the world's leading energy companies on finance matters and in landmark pieces of litigation.

Hawkins was the chair of the Global Projects Group at Paul Hastings, according to his bio. The group as a whole is active in energy sector mergers and project finance and has advised Intergen and Con Edison on recent billion-dollar deals, according to the Paul Hastings Web site.  

The other Paul Hastings partners making the jump are: Ellis Butler, Raj Pande, and Laurence Skinner.

A representative for Hunton declined to comment today. The five lawyers submitted their resignations today, and Paul Hastings "wishes them the very best," says Allan Whitescarver, a spokesman for Paul Hastings.
