Drawing on her corporate and project expertise, Sophie is well positioned to advise on all aspects of the energy market.
Sophie is a partner in our Corporate Practice, based in The Hague.
Her practice focuses on the structuring and, more specifically, the development and construction of national and international energy projects. Sophie has vast experience in drafting and negotiating key project agreements - for both conventional and renewable energy projects - which are often the basis for securing project financing. She is also a member of our Energy & Utilities Group. With a corporate background, Sophie also advises national and international (energy) companies on privatisations, cross border mergers and acquisitions, and restructurings. She has been involved in all major transactions in the energy sector over the past 15 years. In addition, Sophie has advised energy companies and financial institutions on the contractual and corporate issues related to legal consequences of the regulatory changes. She was nominated Euromoney's European Women in Business Law award 'Best in Energy' in 2016.
Before joining us, Sophie worked both in house where she lead the legal aspects of the development of projects and for other international law firms. She has extensive experience in providing strategic & boardroom advice. Sophie is dual qualified in the Netherlands and in the UK. She is a member of a number of professional associations, including the Dutch Energy Law Association (NeVER) and the International Bar Association and the UK Society of Construction Law. Sophie speaks regularly on conferences and her numerous articles on energy-related subjects are published in both legal and industry magazines.
