Davis Polk is among a small group of law firms which are consistently retained to handle the most complex project finance transactions for leading business enterprises. We have been involved in virtually every type of project financing on six continents across the full range of sectors, including oil and gas, minerals, energy and infrastructure.
Our Project Finance Group regularly represents the various parties involved in these transactions, including sponsors, lenders, borrowers, governments, development and export credit agencies, construction, supply and offtake contractors, and project bond underwriters.
Our experience includes advising on:
- Non-recourse and limited-recourse bank financings
- Leasing transactions
- Private and public capital markets transactions
- Emerging market transactions
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.
Our ability to offer clients world-class legal advice across the full range of disciplines relevant to project finance transactions puts us in a distinctive position to address our clients’ most complex and high-stakes transactions.
With significant strength in infrastructure, oil and gas, petrochemicals, power and telecommunication, as well as a pioneering position in multi-sourced project finance and project bonds, our practice has consistently ranked among the best in Latin America.
