McDermott Will & Emery has added a partner to its energy advisory practice group, the firm announced Wednesday.
Robert Lamkin, formerly a partner at Greenberg Traurig, focuses his practice on energy trading and regulatory matters. He represents electric power generators, energy trading firms and renewable project developers, among others.
In an interview, Lamkin said that McDermott's strong energy and regulatory practices matched well with his own work. The forthcoming Dodd-Frank Act rules are spurring an interesting mix of regulatory and transactional work. "The past couple of years, the trading work has been busier for me than the regulatory work," he said.
Lamkin said that his own practice will not likely change at McDermott, but he said he hopes to expand "both the work that I've been doing with my existing clients while building relationships with other clients."
