Law firm Addleshaw Goddard has appointed Catherine Fearnhead and David McEwing as co-heads of its global energy and utilities practice.

Catherine and David will join existing co-head Richard Goodfellow, who also serves as AG’s head of Infrastructure and Energy, managing operations across 13 offices in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa.

Catherine has worked at AG since 2010, becoming a partner in 2015, with key experience advising clients on energy transition projects. She advised National Grid on the landmark £15.8bn transfer of its regulated gas distribution portfolio to Cadent and has worked extensively with SGN on the disposal of its surplus site portfolio. She has also advised Liberty Charge and SSE Enterprises on the roll-out of EV charging networks across the UK.

David has worked as partner within AG’s oil and gas team since February 2019, leading on a large number of complex, cross-border corporate transactions and acquisitions of oilfield interests. He has acted leading corporates and private equity houses (based in U.S., Norway, and United Kingdom) who have invested into oilfield service companies in the UKCS, NCS and other jurisdictions, including MENA and ASEAN regions, Australia, and West Africa.

The announcement follows a string of recent appointments by AG’s energy and utilities practice, including partners Martin Stewart-Smith, Rory Connor, Alex Sarac, Paul Jones, Suzanne Moir and Alex Hirom.

Richard Goodfellow, co-head of energy and utilities at Addleshaw Goddard, said: “The energy market is changing rapidly, creating new growth opportunities but also the need for lengthy and complex transitions within long-established resource portfolios. To guide clients through this period, it makes sense to have a leadership team with broad and multi-faceted experience in a number of sectors, positioning AG as a one-stop-shop for clients working in energy and utilities markets.

“Catherine and David are both hugely well regarded both within and outside our firm. Together, they have worked in a broad number of energy and non-energy sectors, creating a leadership skillset which will help AG continue to stand out as one of the strongest practices in the global market.”
