When it comes to handling significant transactions, firms need an army of support to get the deal done.
Pittsburgh (PRWEB) May 31, 2013
Ivan DeVoren, a partner with the energy law firm of Burleson LLP in Pittsburgh, will be participating at the Ninth Annual Environmental Transactional Roundtable. The event, which is attended by some of the largest firms in the country handling mergers and acquisitions, will be held on June 7 from noon to 5 p.m. in New York City.
DeVoren will participate in discussions regarding energy exploration in the modern age, including dispelling common myths about the energy industry, discussing recent developments in the field, and crystal-balling issues to be resolved in the near future.
“When it comes to handling significant transactions, firms need an army of support to get the deal done,” said DeVoren, who has practiced law for more than two decades. “That’s where the value of a boutique law firm like Burleson comes into play. With lawyers on the ground in all major shale and resource plays in the continental United States, we have the capability to put attorneys in the data room on short notice, and we have the background necessary to point out defects that impact the value of an acquisition.”
