Zina Ieseanu, Associate, Engineering, Project & Construction (Belgium Qualified)
I am an associate in the firm's construction and projects group. I have significant experience of work in the energy sector on a range of construction projects across a number of sectors.
I have advised on large scale energy projects involving oil, gas, petrochemicals, power and offshore.
My experience also includes assisting gas and electricity transmission system operators on deals including connection and interconnection, access, offshore and underground gas storage facilities.
I have had the fantastic opportunity of being seconded into the legal departments of two major energy companies and gaining a good understanding of the business and legal needs from a company's perspective.
I often speak at conferences and seminars on energy matters such as smart grids, the thirds package implementation, the liability of energy operators for failure of supply.
I speak English, French, Romanian and Russian.
I like to spend my spare time on tennis courts.
