We regularly represent all of the various parties involved in projects: sponsors, lenders, borrowers, governments, development and export credit agencies, construction, supply and offtake contractors and financial advisers in advising on non-recourse and limited-recourse bank financings, leasing transactions, private and public capital markets transactions and emerging market transactions with development agencies, export credit agencies and political risk insurers.
We understand the unique commercial and political context of each project and the relationship of political issues with the relevant legal and financing issues. We are particularly sensitive to how that relationship can differ in various countries, including the differences between how projects are viewed in the United States relative to most of the rest of the world.
In recent years, our lawyers have successfully executed the financing of power generation facilities, petrochemical plants, oil and gas pipeline facilities, and numerous other capital-intensive projects.
Our project finance work over the past few years has been characterized by continued activity in the international arena, with a particular focus on infrastructure, oil and gas, petrochemicals, power and telecommunications, as well as a pioneering position in multi-sourced project finance and project bonds.
