Elisabeth Ellis is a Partner in the Projects Infrastructure and Construction team in Sydney, focussing on energy and resources and infrastructure projects. Lis has 24 years' experience, including 20 years in Asia. She was seconded for 4 years by another international firm to Thailand, then spent 12 years in MinterEllison's Hong Kong office before being appointed as Managing Partner of MinterEllison's Mongolia office.

Her expertise ranges across a number of industry sectors and legal areas, including infrastructure and project development and M&A, but she is perhaps best recognised as one of Asia's pre-eminent energy and natural resources project lawyers. She has handled mining projects in Australia, Indonesia and Mongolia, power and water projects throughout Asia, and significant LNG and gas projects in China. More recently she has been involved in the development of a number of wind farms and solar projects.

Since returning to Australia Lis has been involved in a number of the team's significant projects, including:
. Agreement for Lease for AMP Services for 55 Bridge Street
. power supply agreement with TransGrid for the Grafton New Correctional Centre Project;
. third party agreements with Newcastle City Council and Hunter Water for the Newcastle Light Rail Project;
. Mine Operations for KEPCO's Bylong coal project
. Operations for Senvion's Murra Warra wind farm project
