Summary: Prominent Energy Commodities attorney Kirsten Polyanski has joined the Houston office of Haynes and Boone as a partner in the Energy Practice group of the law firm.

Haynes and Boone‘s hiring of Kirsten Polyansky adds depth to the commodity trading and finance group, which is poised for growth in the midstream area following the boom in domestic shale crude production and transportation across the country.


“Her vast energy finance knowledge and experience fit nicely with the firm’s energy practice,” said Houston Partner Buddy Clark, head of the Energy Practice Group. “Kirsten’s experience in energy commodities, with a special focus on crude oil and refined products, enhances the firm’s capabilities.”

Polyansky offers in-depth experience in the physical oil space. On the financing side, Polyansky has developed and negotiated inventory monetization/true sale commodity linked finance deals involving refineries, storage holders and third party suppliers/offtakers in several countries and can work with clients to structure bespoke arrangements to suit individual needs and jurisdictions. She also covers all commercial aspects involved in the midstream space for crude oil and refined products, including supply and offtake, transport (pipeline, rail, vessel and barge), storage, import-export, licensing, regulatory, exchanges, security and credit and force majeure and other dispute events.

With the marketing and trading industry segments expanding, law firms can get ahead of the trend by offering financing advice to clients handling crude from the wellhead to retail and all points in between,” Polyansky said. “There are sophisticated aspects of commodities finance that we believe clients will find very attractive.”

Her recent representative experience includes serving as lead deal counsel for a major international institution, where she negotiated, executed and supported several true sale inventory monetization deals. She also represented a large bank to effectively “monetize” rail cars for a firm client, which supported a second firm client to supply crude oil to the East Coast from North Dakota and Canada.

Polyansky received her B.A. from University of Notre Dame, juris doctorate from Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law and LL.M. from Georgetown University Law Center.
