Noreen is a focused lawyer, working on her passion for the environment through her extensive contribution to the field of energy law practice.

Noreen is a Senior Associate in the Energy and Natural Resources practice where she routinely uses her knowledge of international best practices and local requirements to provide dispute, corporate, and project advisory services as well as practical legal, technical and commercial solutions to governments, energy and mining companies, businesses, investors and financial institutions in Africa.

Prior to specializing in energy law, Noreen was an astute litigator and represented high profile clients in constitutional and human rights related matters as well as environment and land law cases before both Kenyan and regional courts.

Noreen has a strong commitment to pro bono work, particularly offering legal research and analysis support to energy law reform and policy development related projects. She also speaks and publishes regularly on topical issues in energy, mining and ADR.
