Hogan Lovells expands energy transition capabilities with new partner hire in Washington DC

Hogan Lovells has welcomed Michael Bonsignore to the corporate and finance practice group in Washington DC.

Joining from Clifford Chance, Bonsignore’s experience covers a broad range of corporate, M&A, and project development work, principally in the energy and infrastructure sectors. He has placed clean energy, energy transition, and infrastructure work at the heart of his practice, representing a mix of US and international sponsors, investors, financing parties, and developers.

Bonsignore’s arrival further enhances other recent appointments to the firm’s global energy transactions team in London, Germany, and Singapore.

 “We are delighted that Mike has decided to join us,” said global corporate & finance practice group leader James Doyle. “He has deep experience in the energy and infrastructure sectors with an emphasis on renewables and energy transition. These areas are growing and evolving at an extraordinary pace and are strategic priorities for the firm and many of our clients.”

Ajay Kuntamukkala, office managing partner of the firm’s Washington, DC office, added: “Mike’s arrival is a significant boost for the office as we reinforce and continue to expand our energy transactional capabilities. His experience across renewables and other aspects of energy transition will help keep us at the forefront of the market, which is priority for us and many of our clients.” 

In his new role, Bonsignore represents companies, private equity and infrastructure funds, sponsors, developers, and investors in connection with their transactional activities, including M&A, dispositions, joint ventures, project financings, project development, and reorganizations.

“I am delighted to be joining Hogan Lovells,” said Bonsignore. “The firm’s energy and infrastructure offering is unique given the strength of its US practice and its incredible global platform. I’m looking forward to working with the team in the US and internationally across the exciting markets in which we operate.”
