She has a thorough knowledge of the UK nuclear legal and regulatory regime and has worked with a wide variety of stakeholders, including government, regulators and utilities. Sue also has experience in international mergers and acquisitions, including the sale by British Nuclear Fuels Limited (BNFL) of Westinghouse Electric LLC to Toshiba in 2006, the sale of Magnox Electric to Energy Solutions in 2007, and the sale of BNFL's interest in the atomic weapons facility, AWE, in 2008.
