Janney Montgomery Scott LLC and Meagher Energy Advisors Inc. formed a professional alliance for M&A advisory work on behalf of clients operating in the midstream and energy infrastructure segments of the oil and gas industry, the two firms said in a joint release on Sept. 14.
Since its formation in 1985, Meagher Energy Advisors have completed over 750 transactions representing more than $10 billion of aggregate consideration. The firm, headquartered in Greenwood Village, Colo., is led by President and CEO Matt Meagher.
In a statement commenting on the alliance with Janney, Meagher said: “We are excited to partner with the Janney team, whose depth of knowledge in the midstream and energy infrastructure sectors complements Meagher’s upstream A&D proficiency and portfolio of clients.”
Janney’s energy investment banking team is co-led by managing directors Curtis Goot and Frank Murphy, who joined the Philadelphia-based firm from Baird last month.
“Over the past two decades we have completed several hundred advisory and capital markets transactions on behalf of a broad range of midstream and upstream oil and gas companies,” Goot and Murphy said in a joint statement on Sept. 14. “Meagher’s strong oil and gas reservoir engineering and geological capabilities will add to our existing expertise and relationships and allow us to continue to provide industry-leading advisory services to clients.”
