HOUSTON – Bracewell LLP is pleased to announce that Partner George D. Fatula has been named to the list of 2017 Energy Rising Stars by Law360. Fatula, along with his fellow Rising Stars honorees, will be profiled by Law360 in the coming weeks.
Elected partner in January 2017, Fatula’s work over the years with Bracewell has contributed to the firm’s Band 1 ranking by both Chambers Global and Chambers USA in Energy: Oil & Gas (Regulatory & Litigation).
“Clients have thought of George as a partner for years, given his judgment and experience,” said Mark K. Lewis, Managing Partner of Bracewell’s Washington office and head of the firm’s oil and gas regulatory practice. “From thinking big picture to working hard and providing practical advice to help clients develop infrastructure projects, George exemplifies what I think of as a ‘rising star.’”
