"Seasoned Energy Lawyer Joins Boutique Investment Bank"

May 18, 2018 – Power Finance & Risk (Richard Metcalf)

A New York-based boutique investment bank has hired an attorney with decades of experience in power and transmission as a senior adviser.

Alan Statman, who has held a variety of roles at law firm Wright & Talisman over the past 33 years, is joining Ansonia Partners, an advisory firm that was created last year through the merger of merchant bank ERM Capital and advisory firm TAG Energy Partners.

He is retiring from Wright & Talisman, where he was managing shareholder from 1993 to 2016, on June 30.

Besides practicing law, with a focus on energy regulation and litigation, Statman has held roles at a number of energy infrastructure developers and owners.

In 1999, he co-founded North America’s first independent transmission company, Trans-Elect. He remained at the company until 2005 as executive vice president, general counsel and secretary.

More recently, he has been a partner on a proposed 800 MW combined-cycle gas-fired project in New Mexico called Libertad, according to his LinkedIn profile.
