Patrick Johnson’s most challenging project was also one of the first major US offshore wind M&A transactions. Patrick represented Equinor in the sale of its stake in two projects to BP. “The bulk of the work on this deal happened in the summer and fall of 2020, i.e., the height of the COVID era,” he says. “And the deal teams were spread across time zones on both sides of the Atlantic. We spent countless hours on video conferencing platforms like Microsoft Teams working to pull the deal together.”

Which of your professional achievements are you most proud of?
“Most recently, I am proud of my role in our firm’s market-leading work in the renewables, carbon capture and energy transition space. This work includes representing Navigator CO2 Ventures in connection with transactions and agreements necessary to develop its Heartland Greenway carbon capture, transportation and sequestration system, and a number of other clients in CCS projects under development. I am also proud of my work advising clients like Equinor in the development of potential U.S. offshore wind projects. Deal-making in these projects frequently relies on a mix of tried and true commercial legal concepts from traditional oil and gas, and novel ideas.”
