Energy (transactions and regulatory)

Within: Energy (transactions and regulatory)

Norton Rose Fulbright renders ‘commercially appropriate, timely, well-considered advice that assists with closing complex transactions on an accelerated schedule’. The team has seen an increase in renewables work; Chris Mitchell is ‘outstanding on solar transactions’. The team has seen some significant change; practice head and former global head of energy Simon Currie left to set up advisory firm Energy Estate, though former Clifford Chance practice head Paul Lingard, who has ‘a strong understanding of commercial drivers’ and ‘finds effective solutions to bring about a satisfactory outcome, often for both parties’, is set to join in late 2018. Further additions to the team include Natalie Lonergan, who joined from Herbert Smith Freehills, Gavin Scott from Ashurst, Martin Irwin from Baker McKenzie, Penelope Ford from Minter Ellison, and Jasmine Sprange from Clayton Utz. Currie remains a consultant to the firm.
