Louis, an English-qualified solicitor, joined the Energy Practice of Dentons in May 2017, having worked in the project finance and energy practice of a leading international law firm in both its London and Moscow offices. His oil and gas practice has primarily been based on advising E&P companies on their participation in upstream and midstream projects, project sponsors on the negotiation of finance and project documents, and project operators on a variety of contractual and regulatory issues. In terms of his power practice, Louis has advised project sponsors of a variety of non-conventional power generation projects, principally PV solar, wind and hydro projects, on their structuring and financing, and the operators on the negotiation of the key project documents, e.g. EPC contracts and offtake arrangements. Finally, Louis has used the experience he has gained working in the energy sector to provide advice to governments and international financial institutions, both on the implementation of concession and public-private partnership arrangements for energy and infrastructure projects, and on unbundling and the development of competitive gas and power markets.

In addition to his legal practice, Louis has authored numerous articles on Eurasian energy market regulation, economics and politics, as an Associate Fellow at the Central Asian Forum at the University of Cambridge, an Associate Professor at the New Economic School in Moscow, an Associate Professor at the European University in St Petersburg, and as an Associate Fellow at the Royal Institute of International Affairs in London.
