Global law firm White & Case LLP continues to expand its Global Project Development and Finance Practice with the additions of Martin Menski, who joins as a partner, and Suzanne Perry, who joins as a counsel. Menski and Perry will work closely together in Washington, DC.

"We are excited to welcome both Martin and Suzanne as we continue expanding our practice globally," said Mark Castillo-Bernaus, Global Head of White & Case's Project Development and Finance Practice. "They are both excellent projects lawyers with the ideal skills to serve our clients' complex needs in the US and around the world."

Menski and Perry both have extensive experience working with US government agencies, export credit agencies and multilateral institutions active in project finance in emerging markets such as Africa, Latin America and Asia-Pacific.

Menski's practice includes advising sponsors, investors, governments and lenders on the development and financing of transactions in the power, LNG, oil & gas, mining and infrastructure sectors, including PPPs. He joins White & Case from Baker Botts, where he was special counsel and advised on some of the most significant LNG and power projects in the US, Latin America and Africa.

Perry previously served as Assistant General Counsel at Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) for almost five years, where she focused on project finance, investment funds, small and medium enterprise finance and political risk insurance, in Latin America, sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia.

"The arrival of both Martin and Suzanne further strengthens our team in the Americas," said Nandan Nelivigi, Regional Section Head of the Firm's Americas Project Development and Finance Practice. "They both offer a wealth of knowledge and experience—not only in the US but globally. Martin's experience working with multilaterals and development finance institutions such as the International Finance Corporation and IDB Invest along with Suzanne's experience at OPIC strongly reinforce our leading position in the project finance market."
