Vistra and Energy Harbor Increased Scrutiny

  • Vistra is guiding a fourth quarter close for its proposed takeover of Energy Harbor.
    • How could FERC’s request for more information impact that timeline? Or DOJ’s second request?

EQT and Quantum Consent Orders

  • The FTC and Pennsylvania Attorney General both announced consent agreements that block private equity player Quantum and the U.S.’s largest natural gas producer EQT from gaining and sharing confidential information.
    • What provisions in the orders stuck out to us?

Lofty Drilling Plans for Small Upstart

  • A small Appalachian driller that has unsuccessfully targeted shallow oil in West Virginia in the past recently got bought out with plans to uplist later this year.
    • What does Upstream reflect about the company’s footprint?

Hinshaw’s Bessie Antin Daschbach Call Highlights

  • On August 8, The Capitol Forum hosted Hinshaw’s Bessie Antin Daschbach to discuss her ESG practice as it relates to the SEC, state policy, international investments abroad, and more.
    • Where is ESG headed for a legal practitioner? For investors?
