As a corporate finance lawyer working predominantly in the extractive industries, I have dealt with a large variety of oil & gas and mining companies, generally assisting them raise funds and put together M&A deals.
I became fascinated with the oil industry from my mid-teens. Originally targeting a degree in Business at university, I identified a commercial angle (petroleum or mining) to my school Geology A-level study and refocused on Geoscience.
I was a bit disillusioned with the renewables industry and was attracted to the strong returns and fundamentals in the O&G sector. I first began working on O&G analytics projects for Wesvault, an O&G commercial consultancy with Australian roots.
