Ana founded E&A Law in 2007 following 12 years of working in government and major legal firms. Based in London since 1998, she has always operated internationally and is multilingual. She specialises in providing tailored advice and legal representation services to states, international institutions and energy companies in the fields of Energy, Dispute Resolution and EU and International Law.
Ana’s vision in founding E&A Law was in direct response to clients’ desire for an independent firm that could work flexibly, interdisciplinary and quickly to address their needs. This is not always possible within the structure of large traditional law firms.
In the field of energy she advises on high-level strategic questions, with experience in fields such as maritime border disputes, oil and gas resources straddling boundaries, concession agreements to construct large energy infrastructure projects, cross-border mergers and acquisitions, and host-government agreements to build pipelines.
Ana also advises on EU law, particularly in Energy, Environment and State Aid, and how it relates to international law. She regularly acts as counsel in investment treaty and commercial arbitrations including gas price reviews. She has also appeared in the Court of Justice of the European Union.
She is reputed for her expertise in dealing with state-to-state matters, an area of strong growth for the firm in 2014. She has extensive experience in negotiating international agreements on behalf of states as well as with law and regulation drafting.
The regions where Ana has most experience include the EU, Central and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union and the Eastern Mediterranean.
Ana is a Solicitor Advocate with rights of audience in the English and Australian courts, as well as the Court of Justice of the European Union.
