TPH and PWP’s inaugural Energy & Restructuring Conference on May 15 at the New York Harvard Club was a tremendous success, due in large part to the great speakers, panelists and guests who participated. Over 200 clients and colleagues took part in an afternoon of lively discussion across energy and restructuring themes. The conference kicked off with an energy macro outlook, led by Matt Portillo, Managing Director and Head of E&P Research, followed by an energy M&A outlook with Chad Michael, Head of Upstream Investment Banking, and Michael Hayward, Director in the Investment Banking division of TPH Canada. The conference was anchored by panels featuring hedge fund and private equity experts including Matthew Bonanno of York Capital Management, Robert Hougie of 1901 Partners, Evan Lederman of Fir Tree Partners, Chris Ortega of TPG Capital, and Nate Walton of Ares Management. The success of this event highlights the great collaboration between our combined firms.
