Jimmy Vallee

Leading American Energy M&A

Lawyer & Commentator

Jimmy Vallee is among America’s most prolific energy dealmakers. As a Texas-based global mergers & acquisitions attorney, he quarterbacks a high-profile legal team for Top 100 law giant Paul Hastings LLP but his energy pedigree didn’t launch in law school. Jimmy’s roots are in the Texas oil fields.

Vallee grew up in Beaumont, Texas where he saw first-hand the real world side of the oil business and developed the practical street sense he brings to mega-energy deals and the boardrooms of global energy firms.

When not orchestrating energy corporate deals, Jimmy Vallee penned the 2017 #1 Amazon best seller – Giant Shifts, Energy Trends Shaping America’s Future. Jimmy’s message that the United States is at a defining moment, its future to be determined by decisions we collectively make about energy today, is changing the conversation for business leaders worldwide.

Jimmy Vallee provides frequent expert legal commentary for media outlets, bloggers, and professional publications. For information on his Giant Shifts tour or to book Jimmy for your event: CONTACT
