Brendan Clark
Partner, Brisbane
I provide specialist advice on transactions and projects in the energy and natural resources and infrastructure sectors. I have nearly two decades' experience advising on mergers and acquisitions, project developments, financings, commodity transportation and sale agreements and regulatory matters in Australia and abroad.
My areas of particular interest include energy transition, evolving markets for hydrogen and alternatives fuels and sustainable business projects. I advise resource companies, power generators, water service providers, service contractors and governments.
