New Zealand-based law firm Greenwood Roche Chisnall has hired energy lawyer Brigid McArthur, who will be arriving in Wellington from Chapman Tripp where she has served for 14 years.
McArthur advises clients on New Zealand’s electricity, gold mining and coal mining regulations. She has previously been instructed on corporate transactions as well as farm-ins and joint ventures, royalty arrangements, offtake agreements, downstream gas and electricity contracts and associated regulatory issues. An example of her previous work includes advising on ExxonMobil’s exploration activities in New Zealand’s Great South Basin.
McArthur says she “always wanted to try a different model,” adding that “being at the peak of one’s profile in the market makes it possible to take the risk of a change, with little if any downside.”
McArthur has been included in every edition of The International Who's Who of Oil and Gas Lawyers since it was first published in 2005.
