Chadbourne & Parke has expanded its London project finance team with the addition of a new partner.

Julien Bocobza, who is Australian qualified, joins the team from Shearman & Sterling where he was an associate.

He focuses on project finance and development in the renewable energy and thermal power sectors. He also does work in the mining, transportation, water and telecoms fields.

Adrian Mecz, London managing partner at Chadbourne, said of the move: “We continue to seek opportunities to add to our project finance capabilities around the world, and Julien brings his deep experience acting for project sponsors and lenders across Africa, the Middle East and Turkey,”
