Middle East Branch Council Announcement

January 23, 2018

We are pleased to announce that Phil Hanson, Dubai-based Projects and Finance Senior Associate from Herbert Smith Freehills, was appointed to the IPFA Middle East Branch Council as FLN representative.

Phil will be assisting IPFA in raising its profile in the market and encouraging participation from the next generation of future leaders in the energy and infrastructure sectors.

Phil Hanson commented:

“I am delighted to have been appointed as IPFA’s FLN representative and to have been invited to sit on their Middle East Branch Council.  The Middle East is currently producing some of the most exciting opportunities in the energy and infrastructure sectors in the global market, with the region leading the way in both terms of size and tariff-rates within the renewables sector.  I hope to contribute towards IPFA’s role in the Middle East projects market.” 

Anthony Ellis, Partner and Head of Middle East Projects and Finance, commented:

“I am extremely happy for both Phil and IPFA.  I am confident that Phil’s enthusiasm and Projects experience will assist IPFA in achieving their objectives as well as strengthening our relationships with clients operating in the region.  This is also a fantastic achievement as it clearly demonstrates the depth of market knowledge our lawyers in the Middle East have within the Projects sector.”

Phil recently moderated IPFA’s webinar on “Middle East Market Update – Will 2018 signal a re-boot of the Middle East project finance market?”  View the webinar online.
