International law firm Addleshaw Goddard has hired Marton Eorsi as a partner within its Corporate Energy team in London, bolstering its offering for clients involved in all aspects of the energy transition.
Marton, who was previously with Allen & Overy, specialises in advising on transactions relating to infrastructure and the energy transition. His practice involves private M&A, joint ventures and restructurings, with a focus on helping clients, including infrastructure and energy funds, deploy capital in renewables to accelerate that transition. He has advised on a wide range of energy projects including offshore and onshore wind, hydrogen, energy from waste, biogas, battery storage and more.
Marton has an international practice, with extensive interest in the Nordics in particular. His experience includes advising Macquarie Capital, Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets (MIRA) and USS on their circa GBP2bn privatisation of the UK Green Investment Bank, and advising Infracapital Greenfield Partners on the €110m investment into EnergyNest, a thermal energy battery storage company based in Norway.
Addleshaw Goddard's corporate team represents an array of FTSE 100 companies, with recognised expertise in the energy sector in the UK and internationally. Earlier this year, the firm was named City Law Firm of the year at The Lawyer Awards.
Chris Taylor, Head of UK M&A at Addleshaw Goddard, said: "Marton is an excellent, highly regarded lawyer with a real passion the work he does and he will be a great addition to our corporate energy team. The global energy transition is a huge focus for our clients and Marton's experience of working closely with financial investors on energy and infrastructure projects fits perfectly within our wider energy group in both Corporate and IPE.
"It is an exciting time to be involved in energy, with the market undergoing a generational change which presents huge opportunities for clients - from those traditionally focussed on hydrocarbons to those purely involved in alternative sources. The level of investment to successfully achieve that change will be unprecedented and our team is in a strong place to help clients deliver the required investment."
Marton's appointment continues Addleshaw Goddard's string of partner hires in the City and comes shortly after the firm announced it will be moving to a prime new London office, 41 Lothbury, in 2024.
The firm also recently hired Corporate Energy partner Fiona Kindness in Aberdeen, previously of Pinsent Masons.
