TLT has appointed award-winning construction lawyer and renewable energy specialist Nick Pincott as a partner in its London office.
Nick joins the firm's UK construction, infrastructure and projects team and supports the firm's leading energy and renewables sector practice.
Nick joins TLT from Norton Rose Fulbright where he was a partner in the energy projects group for more than a decade and specialised in renewable energy projects since the late 1990s.
Nick has a wide variety of renewable energy experience including wind, solar, biomass, energy from waste, wave, tidal flow and tidal lagoon. He has worked on more than 100 onshore wind projects, offshore wind farm projects in the UK, continental Europe, Canada and Taiwan and a variety of rooftop and ground mounted solar installations. He has led numerous overseas projects including in Europe, Africa, North and Latin America and Asia, and inward investment into UK and European projects including from North America and Asia.
Nick's construction experience also extends to ports (including the recent London Gateway port and logistics park development) and large scale domestic defence, government accommodation, road and healthcare projects including PFI and PPP projects.
Simon Goss, head of TLT's construction, infrastructure and projects team, comments: "Nick is a leading construction lawyer and a renowned renewable energy specialist with a breadth and depth of experience that complements TLT's leading status in the renewable energy market. Nick will further support our ability to offer our energy clients, investors and developers an end to end service, from planning and construction through to negotiation and completion.
"As the UK and wider European energy markets mature and evolve, we are seeing increasing interest from overseas investors in renewables, especially from a construction point of view, and increasing opportunities to apply our extensive knowledge and experience to overseas projects. Nick's appointment will be critical to driving this forward."
Nick Pincott, partner at TLT, says: "TLT has a strong construction team and is one of the most experienced and well established law firms in the renewable energy sector in the UK. I was attracted by this dual strength and am very excited to be joining. The renewable energy and sustainability market is a fast changing one and TLT is at the leading edge of this. I am looking forward to working with the team to support their clients and meeting the needs of developers, investors and lenders across technologies and markets as the sector continues to evolve."
