Jurgenson joins Clyde & Co project team
Stephen Jurgenson has joined Clyde & Co’s global projects group as a partner in London. He joins his new firm from Winston & Strawn’s London office, which he joined in 2017 having previously worked in the United Arab Emirates for seven years, over four of which were with Winston, where he led that firm’s Dubai office.
Prior to joining Winston & Strawn in 2015, his career included stints at Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, which he joined in 2012, leading Pillsbury’s Abu Dhabi office, and over five years at now-defunct Dewey & LeBoeuf, where he made partner in 2016, leading the firm’s Abu Dhabi office.
He also worked as counsel at Shearman & Sterling and Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer as an associate in London, having also been seconded to Alstom Power for a year, during his time at Freshfields.
Those experiences have given Jurgenson over 20 years’ transactional experience in energy, utilities and infrastructure matters, spanning Europe, Africa and the Middle East, with his practice centered on project development and finance, banking and institutional finance, corporate lending, as well as mergers and acquisitions and Public Private Partnership matters.
His industry experience includes all aspects of the energy sector, from power generation, hydropower, renewables, and oil and gas businesses, to projects centered on the extractive industries, including natural resources, and the real estate and transportation sectors, including projects combining such industries.
In a statement, Liz Jenkins, who sits on the firm’s global management board, said Jurgenson would provide the firm with “project finance capabilities which plays well into our global projects and construction practice”, as well as related practice groups in the firm.
She added: “London remains a key global centre of project finance which is why Stephen’s presence here and experience acting in so many markets across the world will be invaluable.”
Jurgenson said the firm’s sectoral focus was a key attraction, especially in respect of “the type of work I'm doing around the world for energy, natural resources, infrastructure and transport companies and more”.
