Natasha Luther-JonesDLA Piper

DLA Piper’s renewable energy practice has recently made two new additions to its team; offshore wind specialist Bruce Chen, who joined from Allen & Overy LLP as of counsel, and legal director Steven Gray, who formerly worked on climate matters at the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy. Global energy and natural resources co-chair Natasha Luther-Jones, who divides her time between Leeds and London, is described as ‘exceptionally creative’ by clients; she regularly works with colleagues across the firm’s Europe network to effectively handle cross-border mandates, with Andreas Gunst in Vienna and Fredrik Lindblom in Oslo both key names. The group has recently seen a number of departures to Ernst & Young LLP, with Charles MorrisonDimitri Papaefstratiou, and Simon Collier all leaving to establish a new energy practice for the Big Four firm. Senior associate Jeremy MacIver, who specialises in green energy, has of late been working remotely in New Zealand and building up the firm’s connections there.
