Dentons has appointed Dubai-based partner Mhairi Main Garcia as head of Energy, Transport and Infrastructure (ETI) for the Middle East.
A corporate and commercial lawyer specialising in project development and M&A in the energy and infrastructure sectors, Garcia has advised sponsors, lenders, contractors and public sector clients on a number of leading and first-of-a-kind deals across the MENA region and beyond. She focuses on utility and infrastructure projects and upstream oil and gas projects, including project development, acquisitions and disposals, and regulatory matters. She has a particular interest in advising on matters related to the energy transition, and is vice-chair of the board of the Clean Energy Business Council, an organisation which brings together stakeholders to promote the deployment of clean energy across MENA. Mhairi also spearheads the Women in Clean Energy (WICE) programme.
‘I am delighted to take on this important role, ensuring that our multi-disciplined ETI offering in the Middle East works seamlessly with the firm’s global energy and infrastructure team to deliver for clients both in the region and across the world,’ said Mhairi Main Garcia.
Paul Jarvis, who will become CEO of Dentons’ UK, Ireland and Middle East region on May 1, 2021, said, ‘We are advising on a number of significant energy and infrastructure projects across the Middle East and under Mhairi’s leadership I am confident that we will further enhance our capabilities in this area.’
