Global law firm Norton Rose Fulbright is pleased to announce the appointment of Poupak Anjomshoaa to partner in the London office. She joins from Carbon Holdings, a developer, owner and operator of petrochemicals projects, where she was General Counsel.

With over 20 years’ experience in the energy, infrastructure and construction sectors, Poupak has a broad skill-set spanning dispute resolution and transactional work. She has a particular focus on downstream oil and gas and large scale petrochemicals projects.

Poupak Anjomshoaa commented:

“Norton Rose Fulbright’s global presence, strong industry experience and first-rate profile in projects and the energy sector provide a very exciting platform for me.  I look forward to working with my new colleagues around the world and expanding the petrochemicals practice, alongside the wider power and infrastructure practices.”
