Lisa G. Henneberry


Lisa Henneberry is a partner in the firm’s Energy practice. She has extensive experience in the development, construction and operation of infrastructure projects and related commodity transactions, particularly in the energy sector. These include handling all aspects of projects related to both conventional and renewable power generation, natural gas, LNG, and carbon-free and renewable fuels, as well as the development and construction of complex infrastructure across multiple industries (chemicals, steel, iron, heavy fuel products). She also has extensive experience in the negotiation and arbitration of energy commodity disputes, particularly in relation to natural gas and LNG price. 

The combination of Lisa’s transactional and disputes expertise allows her to advise clients not only on the traditional transactional aspect of project development on the front end, but to anticipate – and help to define mitigation strategies around – issues likely to arise over the life of the project. Should issues ultimately arise, Lisa brings a unique perspective to identifying, and implementing, potential solutions from both a transactional and dispute resolution perspective, and, often, a combination of both.

Lisa has significant experience representing suppliers, purchasers, transporters and shippers of natural gas, lithium, coal, coke, steam, biofuels, petrochemicals and power around the world, including both short and long-term cross-border contracts, for both trading and direct consumption purposes, as well as pooling and aggregating arrangements. She has also represented energy developers and offtakers in the development, construction and operation of conventional and renewable power generation facilities, chemicals plants, industrial plants, biofuels facilities, LNG terminal, and pipelines, including all associated capacity, input, and offtake contracts throughout the Americas and in several other countries around the world.

Lisa was recognized as one of Latinvex’s "Top 100 female lawyers” for Energy.
