Leading international law firm Addleshaw Goddard has hired Matthew Williams, as a Partner within its Infrastructure Projects and Energy (IPE) team. Matthew will work primarily on M&A and projects within the zero-carbon power assets market.

Matthew’s practice focuses on some of the most valuable M&A transactions and development projects in the energy sector for a range of clients including utilities, oil & gas majors, independent power generators, banks and infrastructure funds. Matthew has been ranked in both Chambers and the Legal 500 since 2010 and in the Legal 500’s “Hall of Fame” for the power sector since 2019.

AG has recently advised on several landmark deals within the zero carbon power sector, including advising Volkswagen on its strategic collaboration with bp to roll out super-fast EV charging units across bp retail sites. The firm also advised on a world-first 100% green hydrogen-to-homes demonstration network for Scotia Gas Networks.

Richard Goodfellow, Head of IPE and Co-Head of Energy & Utilities at Addleshaw Goddard, said:


“We are really excited to bring Matthew into our team. He has advised on some of the most valuable and strategic zero carbon power transactions in recent years and is highly experienced in both renewable and non-renewable assets.

“As we move to a zero carbon future, having industry leaders who can bridge that gap between fossil fuel and renewables is critical, as is having multiple partners who can help clients in this area.”
