Enron Europe general counsel Mark Evans has returned to private practice. He will join the London office of Hammond Suddards Edge in June
During his six-year term at Enron Europe, Evans directed a multiple-jurisdiction team based in Germany, Norway, Australia and Japan, in addition to the UK. He advised on regulatory and transactional matters. Evans said: "I'm looking forward to playing a part in the continued development of the corporate finance and utilities practices." He joins the practice headed by William Downs. Downs has stepped down as head of the Manchester office to focus on building the utilities group. Hammonds' utilities group, which advises clients including BNFL, Innogy, TXU and British Energy, has been targeted by the firm as an area ripe for exploitation.
