I have advised on acquisition strategies and commercial projects and have engaged with industry associations and authorities, including negotiations with the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, on a wide range of policy issues including insurance, waste and intellectual property.

I am familiar with the range of licensing, permitting and regulatory issues that nuclear new build projects face, as well as the unique corporate governance issues that potential nuclear site licensees need to overcome.
