Leveraging his expertise in infrastructure development in the mining, telecommunication, transport, power and energy and information technology areas, he has advised clients on numerous cross-border projects in Africa, including mining, energy, and telecommunication projects.

Ashen advises on all aspects of limited recourse financing and has expertise in engineering, procurement and construction.
