Welcome to the April edition of Focus. Since the last edition, we are pleased to announce that Trinity has been joined by Rory Tait, the former head of the energy group at Eversheds LLP. Rory has joined to help the continued growth of the energy practice at Trinity, particularly in relation to clean and renewable energy. With recent new instructions in the transport infrastructure, oil & gas and renewables sectors both in the UK and internationally, the firm remains busy and aims to grow the team further in the coming months. In this edition of Focus, Patrick Leece looks at the issue of project company default in project financed infrastructure projects. “Legalese”, our layman’s guide to legal expressions and concepts, explains what “time of the essence” really means when it comes to contracts.
