Addleshaw Goddard has recruited two new partners to join its Infrastructure, Projects & Energy (IPE) practice.

Suzanne Moir, a former partner and head of Projects at DWF, joins today and will be based in Edinburgh. Martin Stewart-Smith, based in London, joined in April from the London office of Bracewell LLP.

Ms Moir has more than 20 years' experience advising on a variety of infrastructure, projects and procurement work. She has a leading energy from waste practice and her expertise in transport around roads, tolling, light rail, rail franchises and public service obligations will complement Addleshaw Goddard's UK market position in these areas. 

Mr Stewart-Smith has spent over 30 years working in the energy sector, two of those on secondment with the World Bank Group in Washington. He will focus on electricity infrastructure, oil, gas, and liquefied natural gas projects and transactions using his extensive international and cross border project development, project finance and corporate transactions experience. 

Richard Goodfellow, head of the Infrastructure, Projects & Energy Group commented: "Our plan to assemble by 2021 one of the strongest global practices in the market is ahead of schedule. Suzanne's experience in energy waste management will play well into our Energy & Utilities sector practice, adding additional capability to our already strong team in which we're uniquely placed to maximise the new energy reality."

He added: "Martin's experience will further strengthen our energy transactional practice, deepening our relations with major energy clients which is aligned with the firm’s existing offering as well as a more international base to which to transport our existing client work."
