Laura Hills
Gerald R. Ford Presidential Foundation, Trustee

June 4, 2018 through Present

Laura Hills is a founding partner of Hills Stern & Morley LLP. She began her emerging markets work in the early days of independent power project financing, representing Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) on the first such project financed by OPIC in Latin America. Since then, she has worked on a variety of generation projects from the large multi-creditor, PPA-backed utility projects to smaller remote mini-grid projects, as well as projects deploying distributed generation. Following her tenure at OPIC, Ms. Hills sought to create a law firm for investors looking to enter or expand in those markets supported by development finance institutions and help them efficiently access those bilateral and multilateral resources created to support their investment.

Ms. Hills is a member of the District of Columbia bar. She received a B.A. in political science and Spanish from Stanford University and a joint JD/MA from Stanford Law School. She was the Editor-in-Chief of the Stanford Journal of International Law. She has held an appointment as Adjunct Professor of Law at Georgetown University Law Center (2003-2009) where she taught International Project Finance. Since 2010, Ms. Hills has been included in “Best Lawyers in America” for her work in project finance.
