The practice spans the full life-cycle of power work, demonstrates expertise in generation, transmission, distribution and commercialisation, and is routinely engaged by multinational names such as State Grid Corporation of China and Engie. Tiago Figueiró is noted for his ‘strong industry knowledge and problem-solving approach’; he acted alongside Ana Carolina Barretto to advise Shanghai Electric Group Company in, ultimately terminated, negotiations with Eletrosul Centrais Elétricas for the acquisition, financing, development and operation of a transmission line project.
