Stefanie Atchinson is a counsel in Crowell & Moring’s Energy Group in the firm’s London office, focusing on the structuring, financing, and delivery of complex infrastructure and renewable energy projects (often on a P3 or project finance basis).

Many of the transactions on which Stefanie has advised have been based on a P3 model and/or have successfully secured project finance debt. She has extensive knowledge of what is needed to make projects bankable, both in terms of government-backed projects and also purely commercial projects.

Stefanie advises on both primary projects and the acquisition and disposal of projects in the secondary market.
