Maddocks has appointed one of Australia’s leading energy and resources lawyers.
Peter Limbers will be joining Maddocks as a partner in Sydney in early 2020. Peter is widely recognised as one of Australia’s leading lawyers in the renewables, electricity and gas sectors.
Peter has extensive experience acting for energy utilities and investors on development projects, acquisitions and transactions in the solar, wind, energy storage and distributed energy sectors, as well as on conventional power generation, energy network development, commodity trading, retailing and marketing.
He also advises government and the energy sector on energy market regulatory reform and the corporatisation of utilities.
Peter, who joins Maddocks from Ashurst, is ranked as a leading lawyer in his field in the latest Chambers Global and Asia-Pacific legal directories.
Head of Maddocks Commercial practice, Julian Smith, said Peter’s appointment was a significant addition to the firm’s energy and resources capabilities.
‘Peter’s vast experience in the energy sector fits in perfectly for the work we do with government and private sector clients in infrastructure, planning and environment, and competition and regulation.’
