Caroline's focus at Osborne Clarke is the renewables sector, and during her time here she has advised the lenders and sponsors on the financing of wind farms, solar farms and AD and EfW plants, working closely with our construction, property, tax, corporate and regulatory teams.
Recent experience includes advising the sponsors on the financing of a large onshore wind farm, the borrower on its acquisition facility (for the purpose of acquiring solar projects), the lenders on a private wire biomass plant and various sponsors on their acquisition and development of university student accommodation (including by way of a bond financing). Previous experience includes advising the borrower on the financing of the design, construction and operation of a bioethanol plant, helping a borrower obtain the funding to acquire an oil and gas asset portfolio, and advising lenders in respect of numerous reserve based lending facilities.
Caroline's experience has been truly international, dealing with companies, assets and lenders in North America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Africa, as well as the UK. Caroline also has in-house experience, having previously undertaken secondments to two different banks.
Caroline joined Osborne Clarke in Bristol in January 2013, after nearly nine years of working at a Magic Circle firm in London (including six months in their Singapore office).
