It’s been a good month or so since we last heard from Bracewell LLP — a firm that has undergone some changes since the start of 2016, including a rebranding from Bracewell & Giuliani to just Bracewell after name partner Rudy Giuliani joined Greenberg Traurig.
On Monday, the firm announced a changing of the guard: Houston-based corporate lawyer Gregory M. Bopp has been elected managing partner, effective July 1, 2016.
Bopp succeeds Mark C. Evans , who will retain a leadership role at Bracewell as co-chair of the firm, alongside Patrick C. Oxford, the firm said in an announcement.
In 2015, Bopp represented Kinder Morgan Inc. in the $76 billion acquisition of Kinder Morgan Energy Partners LP, Kinder Morgan Management and El Paso Pipeline Partners LP, the firm said.
Bopp and Evans traded compliments in a statement: “He’s an accomplished lawyer and a tremendous leader,” said Evans. “Over the years, Greg and I have developed a close personal and professional relationship, and I look forward to working with him in his new role.”
Bopp, who is co-chair of Bracewell’s business and regulatory section and a member of the management committee, focuses on tax structurings, joint ventures, M&A and capital markets for midstream and upstream energy clients, according to his firm biography.
He received his law degree in 1995 from South Texas College of Law.
