The ‘diverse, long-standing and focused’ practice at Norton Rose Fulbright is headed up by Rob Marsh, who is vastly experienced in the financing of energy projects. The team ably advises both developers and lenders on the full gamut of energy work which spans an array of sectors, including solar, onshore wind and renewables. The team is well-equipped to handle complex matters at both domestic and international level. Charles Whitney, for example, has an incredible focus on a range of work in Uzbekistan, and is described as a standout practitioner.’ Christopher Down, noted as a ‘thoughtful and dedicated partner’ also has a specialism in this international work. ‘Exceptional operator’ Stephen Rigby has a focus on UK energy and natural resources-related corporate finance work, and Madhavi Gosavi, also finance-focused, is another name to note. Finance specialist Nicky Davies has bolstered the London team with her July 2022 internal relocation from the firm’s Singapore office.
