Eversheds has announced the appointment of London partners Mark Dennison and Conrad Purcell who join from Norton Rose Fulbright.
Mark Dennison focuses on clean energy and infrastructure finance. He advises on projects for the delivery of all types of renewable technology, most recently in biomass, offshore wind and solar PV, as well as on social and other infrastructure finance, including housing, street lighting, roads and defence transactions. His clients include banks, funds, sponsors and local authorities. Mark has expertise across the full spectrum of public/private partnership structures and on the provision of finance by the public sector.
Conrad’s practice covers all aspects of financing energy and infrastructure projects, with a particular focus over recent years on renewable energy projects. He advises developers, lenders, contractors and public bodies in both well established markets such as the UK, Sweden and Central Europe and emerging markets, such as Morocco, Nigeria, Kenya and South Africa, drawing on his experience of simple and bespoke complex funding plans. He also advises on the construction, acquisition and disposal of energy and infrastructure projects. As well as working in private practice Conrad spent nearly four years working for the developer Renewable Energy Systems in-house.
Indraj Mangat, head of clean energy finance, comments:
“Both Mark and Conrad will greatly enhance our existing energy offering as their project finance expertise directly aligns with the issues our clients are facing. These two high calibre lawyers will ensure we are very well placed to advise clients across the clean energy board and in the delivery of new infrastructure.”
Simon Waller, head of finance, comments:
“We are excited to welcome both Mark and Conrad to the team. Both of them bring excellent experience and market knowledge that will be a great asset to our growing team as we continue to service our international client base.”
“Having spent a significant amount of time working on international projects in Europe, the Middle East and Africa in my past role I look forward to expanding the global practice here at Eversheds and continuing to focus on financing energy and infrastructure projects, especially in the growing renewable energy space.”
“I am thrilled to be joining Eversheds’ energy and infrastructure group with Conrad. Renewable energy technology is evolving rapidly and demand for projects for the delivery of clean energy and new infrastructure continues to grow in many markets. Eversheds provides the ideal platform to advise in these areas.”
