She has been advising some of the largest UK energy operators engaged in carbon capture and storage projects, gas fired power stations, hydrogen production, and land-based solar energy and battery storage developments.

Working with Aberdeen corporate partner Brian Thumath and colleagues across the UK, Rona has also advised buyers and sellers of large portfolios of renewable energy assets and first-time and established market investors.

Associate Susan Henretty has also recently relocated from Glasgow to join the Aberdeen Energy Property team, which works in tandem with Glasgow-based partners David Ross and Head of Property Energy & Infrastructure Jennifer Ballantyne.

Rona Kostulin said: “As a firm we are advising global energy companies who are developing cutting edge solutions to the energy crisis as they explore the most efficient and pragmatic ways to transition into green energy.

“Our Property Energy practice is expanding due to an increased demand for a specialist skill set which combines legal and commercial expertise. Working closely with our colleagues in our Corporate Energy, Planning and Banking teams, we are well placed to assist businesses wherever they are positioned on the journey to net-zero.”

Pinsent Masons employs more than 600 staff at its three Scottish offices in Aberdeen, Glasgow and Edinburgh out of a global staff of more than 3,300, including 450 partners operating from 27 offices around the world.
