Energy specialist Nick Kelly joins the team at Arbor Law

We’re continuing our growth in 2022 here at Arbor Law as we welcome Nick Kelly to the team.

Nick has been running his own legal consultancy for the past eight years working for a range of energy clients as their in-house counsel, including Smart DCC, Warrego Energy and Atlas Copco. Prior to this, he was the General Counsel for Sindicatum Sustainable Resources, a leading developer, owner and operator of clean energy products worldwide

Nick said: “Joining Arbor enables me to expand the commercial and corporate work I do for my clients at this critical time for the energy sector. Energy has been slow to digitise. It could be seen as one of the last analogue industries in many ways, and I am especially interested in the divergence of energy, IT and outsourcing and the roll out of fibre optics. The recent IPCC report highlighted the urgency of climate change impact and the priority to reach net zero targets and invest sustainably and there is a huge amount of work to be done – I hope I can support my clients with this journey.”

Arbor Law co-founder Kate Bennett said: “Nick is a great asset to our team. We are seeing huge client demand when it comes to sector expertise in renewable energy and this is a priority area for Arbor going forward. Nick also bolsters our core expertise in corporate and commercial.”

Arbor Law co-founder Dan Adams added: “Like all our lawyers at Arbor, Nick combines commercial pragmatism with technical expertise. He shows an incredible understanding for client needs in an approachable way. He is also an experienced General Counsel, which bolsters our Virtual General Counsel offering.”

We have welcomed a number of new senior lawyers to the Arbor Law team in the past six months. Commercial law and technology specialists Shaw Stapely and Nicky Greves joined at the end of 2021 as well as former senior partner for Dentons UK & Middle East Kenneth Shand, who is working with us as a Non-Executive Director helping on strategy and consultant career development.

If you are an experienced legal consultant looking for an entrepreneurial journey alongside like-minded lawyers who have done this before, then we’d love to speak with you. Check out our Join Us page for more information and  Contact Us if you would like to know more.
