Partner, Head Of Office, Johannesburg
Apicksha specialises in infrastructure and energy finance in Africa, Europe and the Middle East. She has over 12 years of experience in the transport, renewable energy, healthcare, education and accommodation sectors.
For project financing renewable transactions in the UK, over the last eight years, every time we have used the Pinsent Masons’ legal services led by Apicksha, we have been very satisfied with the level of professionalism and pragmatism shown throughout the whole negotiation process by her and the team. Compared to many other partenrs, I found in Apicksha an in-depth knowledge of the market conditions and a great understanding of what is realistic to expect and what is not during the negotiation of loan agreements and ancillary documentations. I am happy to have Pinsent Masons led by Apicksha within our list of preferred law firms.
