McDermott Adds Energy M&A All-Star in Houston


International law firm McDermott Will & Emery is pleased to announce the addition of Denmon Sigler as a Houston-based partner in its Transactions Practice Group. Denmon is a recognized leader in the conventional energy space and draws on more than two decades of highly skilled transactional work and leadership to support McDermott as a first-choice energy practice in Texas.

“The current market shows our conventional and renewable energy clients in Texas are engaged in a high level of transactional activity with high-impact business decisions,” Harris Siskind, global head of the transactions practice, said. “Denmon is a proven and trusted advisor to some of the largest energy companies in the United States and we are thrilled she’s chosen McDermott.”

Denmon focuses her practice on energy transactions involving the purchase and sale of companies, business units and assets and the formation and governance of joint ventures, as well as operating and maintenance, product feedstock, terminal storage, drilling and offtake arrangements. She represents refining, chemical and petrochemical clients in complex transactions and project development, oil and gas clients in matters involving the ownership, development and operation of conventional energy resources and companies across industries in acquiring renewable resources and navigating the energy transition.

“I am very excited to join a firm committed to growing its robust energy portfolio, especially in the Houston market,” Denmon said. “McDermott has strong credibility in Texas and across global energy circles with distinct experience in the renewable sphere, and my clients and I are confident this is a fantastic platform to support their business transactions.”

Denmon joins from Baker McKenzie, where she held several leadership positions, including chair of the North American Energy Transaction and Houston office Corporate & Securities practice groups, co-chair of the North American Anti-Racism Task Force and chair of the Houston chapter of BakerWomen (a program designed to create cross-firm mentoring and female peer networking). Denmon was named to the “Top Women in Energy” in 2020 by Texas Legal Awards. She received her BA from Rice University and JD from South Texas School of Law.

Denmon is the most recent of several energy industry heavy hitters, joining the Firm shortly after Jack Langlois, Jibin Luke, Kevin Brophy and Andy Lehman in Houston, Marcus Helt in Dallas, Ignatius Hwang and Merrick White in Singapore and Parker Lee, Jim Salerno, Robert da Silva Ashley and Emeka Chinwuba in New York.
