Tom Wigley, Partner and head of energy and natural resources at international law firm Trowers & Hamlins LLP, has moved from the firm's London office to operate out of the firm's office in Oman. 

The move will enhance the team that Trowers' has in the region and further grow the firm's energy and natural resources capabilities across the Middle East.

Tom was based at the firm's London office for 15 years. During this time his practice was focused on Middle Eastern matters, with a particularly specialism in power generation and transmission, water and infrastructure development projects and oil and gas work.

Tom commented on his change of location:

"We are continuing to invest in our Energy and Natural Resources capabilities across the entire firm and it will be great to work more closely with our Middle East teams on the ground. We already have a very compelling offering in the Middle East and beyond, and we are looking to develop and grow our client base further. We see considerable opportunities in the region around energy efficiency, waste to energy and renewables; all areas where we can use our UK expertise to better assist regional clients."

The firm has recently been appointed by Electricity & Water Authority in Bahrain in relation to the Al Dur II IWPP; also of note is the achievement of financial close of the APCO IPP in Jordan where Tom led the team which advised NEPCO on what is to date Jordan's largest project financing.
