Profile
Mr Afridi's practice focuses primarily on infrastructure and project finance. For several years, he has been a front-runner in Pakistan's energy sector, and has participated in the development of numerous thermal and hydel power projects in the country. He has also been nominated from time to time to resolve other global issues with the power purchaser on behalf of the industry.

Acting in the capacity of Project Developer's Lead Counsel, Mr Afridi has concluded transactions with a cumulative value of over US$4 billion spread over several project finance transactions. As lead counsel, he advised on the first ever private sector hydel power plant in Pakistan and the first ever in the Kashmir region. It was also the first to be jointly financed in the private sector by the Asian Development Bank and the Islamic Development Bank.

Mr Afridi joined Afridi & Angell in 1993 and became a partner in 1996. Prior to that, he was an associate with Sidley & Austin in New York. At Fordham University, he received the Edward J Hawke Prize for graduating with the highest grade point average in his class.
