Gowling WLG launches multi-disciplinary Energy Transition, Infrastructure and Projects team

01 May 2024

International law firm Gowling WLG is pleased to announce the launch of its Energy Transition, Infrastructure and Projects (ETIP) team across its UK LLP.

The launch brings together the firm's project finance, energy and infrastructure and Government projects practices into a single team. This will enhance the firm's ability to offer a fully consolidated delivery model to its clients, as it continues to advise on all aspects of project development, construction and finance in the energy transition, infrastructure and Government projects sectors.

Partner and head of Project Finance, Nath Curtis, will lead the ETIP team. Nath has 20 years experience in the energy and infrastructure sectors and will be supported by a strong team of partners and senior lawyers across the firm's UK and Middle East offices.

Nath said: "The economic and social case for the energy transition, building sustainable infrastructure for the future, investing in nature and ESG is beyond doubt. Our new ETIP team will take our fantastic experience in these areas and allow us to be even more integrated and collaborative. As our clients continue to invest in significant and innovative deals and to develop new solutions and technologies, we will advise and support them across the full spectrum of legal services required."

Jonathan Brufal, head of International Projects, said: "The creation of the new team is driven by our desire to put our clients first. The teams in the UK and the Middle East have been jointly advising on a number of award-winning projects in the GCC over the last 18 months and the new team will allow us to deliver a fully integrated and more efficient service."

David Fennell, chief executive of Gowling WLG (UK) LLP, added: "The combination of these existing practices into a single team aligns with the firm's strategy for growth, enhancing our platform and ability to compete for the highest quality work in areas that clearly will be crucial for the sustained growth and stability of the global economy for the foreseeable future."
