Maddocks builds projects expertise
Maddocks has hired major projects and infrastructure partner Simela Karasavidis.
Karasavidis, who has recently returned to Australia from the UK, brings with her almost 20 years' experience in infrastructure, project finance and energy projects. She joins Maddocks from global firm White & Case.
Karasavidis has been involved in many complex projects and has extensive experience in PPPs and infrastructure concessions. She has advised public and private clients in a variety of sectors in the UK, Europe, Australia, Middle East and Africa.
According to Karasavidis: "Maddocks provides the perfect opportunity to build upon existing relationships with international contractors and operators, many of whom have a presence in Australia, and to use my substantial experience in UK government and emerging market projects for the benefit of Maddocks’ government clients. This is an exciting time to be involved in Australian infrastructure and energy projects, and I'm looking forward to developing a practice where I can apply my experience of international models and best practice.”
Karasavidis’s arrival brings the number of Maddocks partners to 69, 20 of whom specialise in infrastructure and energy projects work.
