Elizabeth is a partner in the Commercial Group based in London, with a focus on defence and energy projects.
Specialising in complex contracting and projects work, Elizabeth's clients are principally in the defence and energy sectors.
Elizabeth has developed strong client relationships with some of the largest defence companies in the world, leading teams advising on some of the most high profile and long-term military major programmes across air, land and maritime sectors. Recent projects Elizabeth has advised on include long-term complex contracts in the maritime sector, contracts for the in-service support of transport/utility helicopter and a military pilot training PPP. As a result of her sector focus, Elizabeth has in-depth knowledge and experience of the commercial and legal issues associated with defence contracting, including the MoD standard form project agreement and DEFCONs.
Elizabeth's other focus is renewable energy projects. She regularly advises developers, investors and EPC contractors on all the project contracts required for the design, build, finance, consenting, operation and offtake of renewable power projects. Elizabeth regularly advises on innovative structures that set the agenda for the growth of renewable energy across the globe. Most recently this has included early stage storage projects as well as corporate power purchase agreements. Whilst UK renewables has kept Elizabeth very busy, she also has experience in advising on renewable energy projects across a range of international jurisdictions, including in Chile, Kuwait, South Africa, South East Asia and Australia.
