Aygul Avtakhova is Senior Associate at Correggio Consulting. Skilled in market analysis and project management, Aygul advises clients on a range of European energy policy developments impacting business strategy, regulatory compliance and trade documentation.

 

Her consulting assignments cover a broad range of strategic issues for companies active or intending to be active in European energy commodities markets, including compliance with industry regulation and business impact analysis, contractual support and risk management and due diligence work for infrastructure projects.
