A senior associate in our Infrastructure, Energy, Resources and Projects (IERP) team, Lupus Sabene focuses on project development and construction matters and has a wealth of complex project experience which is invaluable to his clients, be they owners, contractors, lenders, sponsors, developers or utilities.

Lupus has worked globally on some of the largest energy and power projects and this background is key to his ability to either anticipate and resolve potential roadblocks before they arise or to advise on practical proven solutions to a wide range of issues. Whether it is an upstream interest in Latin America or a power and water project in the Middle East, he brings more than a decade of relevant knowledge to the Hogan Lovells team.

Even though Lupus works mainly on the development and construction of energy and natural resource projects, he can also draw on extensive corporate, finance and international arbitration experience.

Prior to joining Hogan Lovells, Lupus worked in-house for one of Japan’s largest trading houses for three years. More recently he has been acting as senior counsel to the main contractor for the construction of the Ichthys LNG onshore facilities. Both these roles have given him significant insight into the needs and drivers of his clients.

Lupus qualified as a solicitor in 2006 after having trained for the English bar.
