Global law firm White & Case LLP has expanded its growing Houston office with a new team of partners. Jason Rocha and A.J. Ericksen join White & Case’s Global Capital Markets Practice and will work closely with the Firm’s Energy Industry Group.

“The addition of Jason and A.J. continues the execution of our strategic ambition to have a leading capital markets capability in Houston,” said John Vetterli, Head of White & Case’s Global Capital Markets Practice. “This team has an outstanding reputation in the energy industry coupled with a strong track record in leading complex corporate finance transactions. Their arrival expands our ability to offer sophisticated capital markets capabilities in Houston, while solidifying our position as a leading Firm for the full range of energy transactions.”

The team advises public and private companies on securities and M&A transactions and has particular expertise in the energy sector. They bring substantial experience in advising on public and private offerings of equity and debt securities, liability management transactions, takeovers, private sales and acquisitions, joint ventures and strategic alliances, as well as in tax structures such as master limited partnerships and Up-Cs. They join White & Case from Baker Botts.

“Jason and A.J. have established a market-leading capital markets practice with an unmatched reputation for their sophisticated understanding of the energy sector,” said Jay Cuclis, White & Case’s Houston Office Executive Partner and Co-Head of the Firm’s Energy Industry Group. “As the energy industry rebounds and demand for energy transaction advice continues to grow, their exceptional market knowledge will strengthen White & Case’s position as a one-stop shop for complex corporate finance transactions in Houston.”

This team’s arrival follows the recent addition of Environment & Climate Change and M&A partner Taylor Pullins to the Firm’s Houston office in January 2021.

Since opening its Houston office in 2018, White & Case has built a strong, experienced team of lawyers who offer clients a full breadth of corporate capabilities.
