In the past six months, we have promoted Harvinder Deol to Counsel and Jo Sykes and Lucy Johnson to Senior Associate. Lucy joined us in November 2016 from Herbert Smith Freehills. We were also recently joined by Simon Holloway who has spent the past ten years at Allen & Overy LLP in London, before which time he was a partner at a leading construction-focused law firm in London. Simon’s specialist EPC knowledge is a significant boost to the team. We now have a team of over 25 full-time lawyers focusing almost exclusively on emerging markets power and infrastructure transactions, with a particular focus on Africa.
Trinity was recently recognised by the Financial Times as the fastest-growing commercial law firm in the whole of Europe. We are proud of the achievement and the Trinity team agrees with the FT1000 that innovative and fast-growing companies are the driving force of the economy in the 21st century.
Trinity’s Francophone practice continues to grow, with our Paris office opening in late 2016 and with active power and infrastructure transactions in Mali, Guinea, DRC, Senegal, Côte d’Ivoire, Benin, Burkina Faso and Liberia. The team also has acted on transactions in Cameroon, Chad, Djibouti, Mauritania and Madagascar, as well as across the North African region.
We look forward to seeing many of you in Copenhagen at the Africa Energy Forum in early June. Trinity is hosting an evening reception at the world-famous Tivoli gardens (including tickets to the evening fireworks show). If you haven’t received a ticket by the end of May and would like to attend, please get in touch with your usual Trinity contact.
