Hurricane Harvey made landfall near Corpus Christi, Texas, Friday night. The storm has caused deaths and property damage as rainfall and flooding continues. Its economic effects will likely be wide ranging, particularly for the state’s large oil and gas industry.

Williams has decades of experience in the energy sector and was recently named a partner with the firm. He spoke with MMG from Houston, where he’s based.
