As an experienced lawyer dealing with complex civil and commercial law-based contracts, I work with you - multinational, medium or small companies, developers, contractors, sponsors, investors and financial institutions - in order to meet your needs and help you with your domestic and cross-border deals in the renewable energy sector and other areas of industry.

Over the years, I have developed technical knowledge together with strong and practical expertise in structuring, drafting and negotiating complex commercial and finance contracts, especially in the niche area of renewable energy - including energy efficiency. My practice encompasses onshore wind, solar, anaerobic digestion, CHP and geothermal power plants, as well as energy efficiency and energy storage projects.

I advise developers of projects at any phase, whether in development or in operation (land reservation, project contracts, financing agreements), contractors on complex construction and maintenance-related contracts (EPC and FIDIC-based contracts, BIM contractual documentation), sponsors and investors on acquisition and divesture of renewable energy portfolios, banks on project financing (due diligence report, loan agreement), aggregators, energy producers, utilities and corporate or industrial offtakers on energy trading-related contracts (aggregation contracts, corporate PPA). In addition, I assist our clients in the repowering process.

My experience in delivering legal services in a multidisciplinary environment, along with an in-depth knowledge of complex contracts, allows me to work in other Bird & Bird key sectors including automotive and the aviation sectors.

Before joining Bird & Bird, I assisted clients on resolving their civil and commercial disputes. This enables me to draw upon my contentious and non-contentious experience when advising my clients in order to avoid dispute, to insert clauses that can become crucial at a time of a dispute or to be more flexible during negotiations.

From day-to-day advice to large-scale business transactions, I am able to provide solutions to the problems that you face, including creative and innovative solutions to unusual transactions.

I work closely with our clients to understand their underlying needs means offering them our high-quality service. It also means that I ensure each contract package is tailor-made for them, based on a proper assessment of risk, strategic, economic and tax issues.

Our complementary practices are crucial in order to offer our clients the range of skills and experience needed, especially for complex energy and infrastructure projects. Here at Bird & Bird, I work with my colleagues across our international network.

I am involved in a broad range of legal matters for a variety of clients, meeting the challenges that they face in a continuing changing legal market-place and working as a team.
