Elisabeth Welson

Elisabeth has been judge of the New Zealand Energy Excellence Awards since 2012 and brings a wealth of experience from across the energy sector to that role. While in legal practice her work advising on major energy and infrastructure projects saw her consistently recognised in international legal directories as a leading New Zealand lawyer for energy and resources projects. At the same time her clients spanned the full breadth of the energy sector – both upstream and downstream oil and gas, electricity transmission and distribution and renewable and alternative generation. She chaired the Energy Law Association for three years, with more than 12 years as a member of its Executive Committee.
