HOUSTON Bracewell & Giuliani LLP represented Bluescape Resources Company LLC in connection with an investment by Energy Strategic Advisory Services LLC (ESAS), a subsidiary of Bluescape, in EXCO Resources, Inc. The transaction closed on September 8, 2015.

C. John Wilder, Executive Chairman of Bluescape, joined EXCO’s Board of Directors and was appointed EXCO’s Executive Chairman.
