Squire Patton Boggs adds energy dealmaker to global team

Squire Patton Boggs has appointed Henry Davey as a consultant in its energy and natural resources practice group in London.

Davey was previously a corporate partner at Herbert Smith Freehills in London.
Davey is an energy corporate M&A lawyer with some 25 years’ experience of energy transactions, encompassing acquisitions and dispositions, project development and commercial contracts. His clients include energy corporates, utilities, financial institutions, infrastructure funds and private equity investors.
Davey’s expertise covers a wide range of domestic and international energy projects, from the sale and purchase of distribution, transmission and pipeline assets and the acquisition and development of wind farms, to complex dispositions worldwide for major oil companies.
Lisa Henneberry, partner and global head of the energy and natural resources practice group, says: “As a leading figure in UK and international energy deal-making, Henry is a perfect fit with our successful, multidiscipline global energy team. His M&A expertise, his knowledge of energy projects, whether power generation, interconnection or transmission, and his commercial contract work complement our existing strengths and will enhance our capabilities in European and international markets. With his sector knowledge, Henry will also make a valuable contribution to our leading energy disputes practice.”
London office managing partner Robert Weekes adds: “We’re very pleased Henry has joined us. He’s an outstanding energy lawyer and the latest leading light in that sector to make the move to Squire Patton Boggs. Since last autumn, we’ve more than trebled our headcount in terms of energy expertise in the UK, and Henry joins Neil Upton, Ian Wood, Trevor Ingle, Matt Mulqueen and the rest of the team in our global practice.”
Davey’s appointment is the most recent in a long line of senior hires that includes Neil Upton, John Danahy, Ian Wood, Luke McCosker, Matthew Mulqueen and Karim Maalioun, and in Washington DC, Lem Smith in the energy public policy arena.
