Sutherland Partner Daniel Johnson Talks to Houston Business Journal about Union with Energy Firm Arbis LLP

Posted on: May 14th, 2014

HOUSTON – Sutherland Asbill & Brennan LLP Partner Daniel Johnson was interviewed by the Houston Business Journal about what the firm’s recent union with European energy boutique Arbis LLP will mean for clients.

Mr. Johnson says Arbis Sutherland LLP, with offices in London and Geneva, bolsters Sutherland’s energy practice, especially in the transactional and trading areas. “It’s sort of a natural expansion for us. With Arbis, we saw the opportunity to grow our expertise, and felt we needed a presence there (in the U.K.) to serve our clients,” he said.

“They offer a pretty broad range of energy expertise. In particular, the energy sector in terms of commodity trading, shipping. They’re also very well regarded in the upstream energy space.”
