Trent Bridges, former Magellan Midstream Partners, L.P. Vice President & Assistant General Counsel, Joins Sidley as Partner in Houston

Sidley Austin LLP is pleased to announce that Trent Bridges has joined the firm as a partner in the Energy and Infrastructure global practice group in Houston. He previously served as Vice President and Assistant General Counsel at Magellan Midstream Partners, L.P., an NYSE-listed company headquartered in Tulsa, OK that primarily transports, stores, and distributes liquid petroleum products.

Mr. Bridges has extensive first-hand knowledge of the midstream industry from his near decade of experience at Magellan. He served as the lead lawyer for Magellan on numerous significant M&A transactions and commercial matters, including negotiating and drafting purchase and sale agreements, joint venture arrangements, terminalling and offtake contracts, and pipeline throughput commitments and related tariffs for the development, construction, ownership, and operation of new and expanded pipeline systems, inland storage and marine export terminals, condensate splitter facilities, and other midstream assets.

Prior to his role at Magellan, Mr. Bridges practiced law at the Oklahoma-based law firm of McAfee & Taft representing NYSE and NASDAQ-listed companies in capital markets transactions and Securities Exchange Act of 1934 matters. He also represented public and private companies in mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, and financing transactions.

“We have known Trent for many years as both a client and across the table and know the quality of his work, his negotiating skills, and his entrepreneurial drive,” said Cliff Vrielink, global leader of the Energy and Infrastructure practice and a member of the firm’s Executive Committee. “His experience as an executive at a preeminent energy infrastructure company will help bolster and expand our work for strategic clients and private equity and infrastructure funds as well as grow our midstream transactional and regulatory practices.”
