John F. Sheedy joins Moscow office of Baker Botts L.L.P
Mr. Sheedy has more than 20 years of experience in representing both Russian and foreign clients in transactions involving Russia. His legal practice has focused on cross-border corporate, M&A and finance matters in a diverse range of industries, including energy, consumer and food products, manufacturing and the financial sector.
During his two decades of work in Russia, Mr. Sheedy has represented a number of energy companies in a variety of projects, including oil and gas ventures, well workover projects, pipeline projects and, most prominently, production sharing agreements (PSA).
