"Receives praise for his 'detail-oriented approach' and 'ability to deal simultaneously with many complicated issues and many different parties'"

Chambers Latin America

Christopher’s practice includes a particular emphasis on energy and infrastructure-related work – having advised on the financing, development, and restructuring of more than 10,000 MW of conventional and renewable power generation and groundbreaking transactions in water and transport sectors. His experience within the power sector includes generation, transmission and distribution, and he frequently provides counsel on a broad array of other infrastructure and industrial matters, including rigs, LNG facilities, gas pipelines, water treatment facilities, toll roads, port infrastructure, and manufacturing facilities.

Christopher has extensive experience in Latin America, where his fluency in Portuguese and Spanish, in addition to English, enables him to negotiate and review contracts in all three languages.
