Haynes and Boone, LLP today proudly announces the opening of a Denver office and the addition of two new partners, well-known midstream and pipeline practitioner Anne Weber and Alan Talesnick, who focuses his practice on securities and corporate matters.

They will be joined by two Houston-based Haynes and Boone lawyers with significant Denver contacts -- Partner Patrick L. Hughes and Counsel Robert Thibault -- with the ultimate goal of establishing a substantial presence to serve the Denver business community, said firm Managing Partner Tim Powers. “Haynes and Boone has a long history of working with clients and contacts in the greater Denver area, so establishing a physical presence in Denver is a natural way to build upon those relationships and reach out to important constituents in the region,” Powers said.

“Anne, Alan and the team we are assembling for this mission will be able to integrate and leverage our strong Texas oil and gas base of operations and deep energy sector expertise, public and private company experience, and the firm’s national capital-source connections to offer clients a unique and highly effective level of legal support for their businesses during a particularly dynamic time in the energy industry.”
