Christopher Thomson is a corporate partner based in the London office specialising in advising clients on projects and transactions in the energy sector.
His background is in oil and gas work, and this remains an important part of his practice, but he also has increasing experience of renewables and, in particular, transition technologies such as hydrogen, green fuels and carbon capture.
Chris’ practice covers both M&A and project development advice, including arrangements between investors and host governments, joint venture contracts and commercial contracts for the transportation and sale of energy products. He also often acts in a supporting role on finance-led transactions for the acquisition or development of energy assets.
He has experience of advising a mixture of independent and national oil companies, as well as commodity trading houses and renewable developers investing in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America, with particular experience of Iraq and Iran.
