Addleshaw Goddard recruits new partner to energy project finance team

International law firm Addleshaw Goddard has recruited project finance specialist Bruce Chen as a Partner in its Infrastructure and Energy team.

Chen, who starts on 2 January and will be based in London, joins from DLA Piper and focuses on advising lenders and sponsors on the financing of large projects in the energy transition, with a focus on European renewables assets and a particular specialism in offshore wind.

Addleshaw Goddard is renowned for its work in renewables and the energy transition, advising on some of the largest, most complex, and innovative projects in the sector from inception through to financial close. It has become a go-to firm for cutting edge developments in areas such as offshore wind, hydrogen, solar and energy storage. 

Richard Goodfellow, Head of Infrastructure and Energy at Addleshaw Goddard, said: "The global economy continues to move towards net zero and Bruce will be a valuable addition to our team as more and more of our clients look to invest in energy transition projects. This type of work is increasingly international, mirroring the expansion of our office network in continental Europe and the Middle East over recent years, and we will continue to build on our offering in this space in all of our markets.

"I look forward to working with the team and our clients in furthering their goals within the energy transition."

The appointment comes just weeks after Addleshaw Goddard announced the recruitment of a seven-strong energy team in Germany from EY Law.
