Ros O'Mally
Partner , Sydney
I have advised clients in the development and financing of energy, natural resource and other infrastructure projects including PPPs and privatisations in Australia for over 20 years. My experience extends across a range of sectors and industries including clean energy, power, telecommunications and transport.

Having acted on a broad range of projects for both sponsors, financiers and government counterparties, I bring a rounded approach to transactions and projects financings that reflects my understanding of the drivers of all of the parties at the table. I enjoy delivering streamlined and efficient transactions and contributing to transformational projects.

I have particular interest in clean energy technologies, hydrogen and transport infrastructure.
