International law firm Norton Rose Fulbright has hired US renewable energy lawyer Elizabeth Sluder, strengthening its projects team on West Coast.
Her practice focuses on project finance, M&A, private equity and general corporate matters relating to renewable energy transactions, construction contracts and offtake arrangements. She advises lenders and borrowers on a range of financing, including mezzanine and junior capital.
Jeff Cody, the US managing partner at Norton Rose Fulbright stated, "Sluder is a top-class lawyer with an impressive track record of success for clients in the renewables space. With her addition to our Los Angeles office, we are strengthening and expanding our West Coast capabilities and our world-leading projects team."
Keith Martin, the US co-head of projects at Norton Rose Fulbright remarked, "Sluder is the third lateral partner we have added to our projects group in the last few months. Many of us have seen her across the table on deals. We were impressed by her skills in moving complicated transactions across the finish line. She is smart and very well organized."
Sluder had spent about 10 years at Morrison & Foerster, having joined from Kaye Scholar, where she spent over six years.
Sluder said, "Norton Rose Fulbright's projects team is widely regarded as a global leader, handling some of the most innovative and complex renewables projects."
The firm's projects group has handled $191bn of transactions over the past four years.
