Charlotte Hanson joined our London office in spring 2019 after working in renewable energy finance and commercial and environmental law. Charlotte’s work focusses on energy market law and policy, particularly in relation to Europe’s transition toward a smart and decentralised energy system.


Before joining ClientEarth, Charlotte worked as a transactions adviser at the Australian Renewable Energy Agency, and was a lawyer at Allens in Sydney, Australia. She was also tipstaff to the Chief Judge of the Land and Environment Court of NSW, the Hon. Brian Preston SC.


Charlotte holds a Bachelor of Laws (Hons 1) from the Australian National University and was admitted to practice in 2013.
