AG has appointed Alex Hirom as a partner in the construction and engineering team, strengthening the firm's expertise as an advisor on major infrastructure projects, including both renewable and traditional-source energy generation.
Alex joins the firm from Womble Bond Dickinson where he worked as an infrastructure projects partner in the firm's construction and engineering team. His practice focused on the negotiation of engineering, construction, operation and maintenance contracts within the energy, manufacturing and infrastructure sectors, with key experience of working on complex engineering projects.
Throughout his career, which includes 17 years' experience working on major infrastructure schemes, he has helped deliver over 50 'power' projects across all technology classes in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. He also specialises in advising manufacturers on major investments, including a nationally significant scheme for SABIC to convert its olefins cracker on Teesside to utilise ethane from North American shale beds.
Alex will work within AG's construction, engineering and environmental function, advising a cross-section of clients, but with key responsibility for projects in energy and manufacturing, in the UK and internationally.
Alex previously worked as a Senior Associate at Clifford Chance.
Nancy McGuire, Partner at Addleshaw Goddard, said:
"Businesses and governments throughout the world are scaling up their investments in low- and zero-carbon infrastructure, creating a raft of new opportunities for firms which are experienced in leading major energy transition projects. Alex has outstanding experience in this space, as well as in traditional energy, manufacturing and transport sectors, making him an excellent strategic hire for the firm. We are delighted to welcome him to the team."
Alex Hirom said:
“I am thrilled to be joining Addleshaw Goddard. This is a time of both significant opportunity and challenge in the energy and manufacturing sectors and Addleshaw Goddard has both the quality of people and the imagination to support businesses as they rise to meet these opportunities. I am looking forward to bringing my expertise in major infrastructure projects to the construction and engineering team.”
