She has also developed specific expertise in energy law and regularly advises investors on the development, acquisition and financing of power plants, as well as on construction, operation and maintenance contracts.

Her expertise extends to regulatory, contractual and transactional aspects in various energy sectors, including electricity, gas, on-shore and off-shore wind projects, solar energy, biomass, and energy efficiency.
