Latham & Watkins is pleased to announce
that Tom Bartlett has joined the firm’s London office as a partner in the

advising developers, sponsors, lenders, buyers, sellers, and other market
participants on the development, financing, construction, operation, and
acquisition of projects throughout Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Latin
America, and around the world.
“Tom is a highly talented and vastly
experienced practitioner with a broad skillset that will further enhance our
existing capabilities in Europe and globally,” said Stephen Kensell, Office
Managing Partner of Latham & Watkins in London. “He brings a stellar track
record advising on large and complex financings, and we are delighted to
welcome him to the team.”
Bartlett regularly advises on cross-border
project finance, acquisition finance, reserve-based lending, Islamic finance, commodity-based
financings, export credit finance, and other structured finance transactions
across a wide variety of sectors and industries. He has extensive experience working on
upstream, midstream, and downstream oil and gas, power, and satellite financings,
and he also regularly counsels clients on innovative renewable financings and
energy transition transactions.
“Tom’s breadth of experience and
established connections are highly complementary to our practice,” added Mo
Nurmohamed, Co-Chair of the firm’s Finance Department in London. “He brings a
combination of deep energy, infra, and power sector knowledge and experience
counselling on high profile, complex matters that will add tremendous firepower
to our already strong bench in Europe and around the world.”
“Our project finance team enjoys an
excellent reputation for being at the forefront of the global market. Adding a
practitioner of Tom’s standing is testament to our global growth strategy and
underscores our commitment to offering clients the most experienced, uniquely
qualified team that can handle a wide range of complex, cutting-edge
assignments,” added Jeff Greenberg, Global Chair of Latham & Watkins’

proven track-record in multiple jurisdictions and across multiple high growth
sectors. A strong practice builder, he will be a tremendous asset for our
clients operating in all corners of the globe.”
