An associate in our Infrastructure, Energy, Resources and Projects Group, Malcolm Parry is also a non-practising barrister and uses his skills as a trained advocate to find innovative solutions to the challenges his clients face. As an industry-focused lawyer, he advises energy and infrastructure clients on the financing and construction of new-build projects and PPPs as well as on corporate transactions such as mergers, acquisitions and disposals.
Malcolm advises clients across a range of sectors, including renewable and nuclear energy, transport, health, defence, education, conventional power, oil and gas and mining. Malcolm is also a core member of our Business and Social Enterprise (HL BaSE) faculty and is keenly interested in the rise of social impact as a central focus of big business. He has spent time on secondment to Big Society Capital, an independent social investment institution, and regularly uses the experience he gained from working with a client with a 'triple bottom line' to ensure that his clients receive tailored commercial advice whilst ensuring that business integrity is a key part of the thought process.
