Project Finance

Meet the team

With vast experience of conventional and bespoke project financing across the world, our team will find the commercial formula that best balances risk and reward.

As diverse, more sophisticated players enter the market, project financing is getting more intricate and complex. In this environment, our multi-skilled team of finance lawyers provide tailor-made finance solutions that are commercially viable, bankable and future-proof.

Supported by our experts in planning, construction, corporate, tax, real estate, restructuring and insolvency, and dispute resolution, we work on single project, multimillion dollar financings and refinancings through to large scale portfolio and multibillion dollar projects across North America, South America, Africa, Europe and Asia.  We regularly top league tables for project finance transactions, particularly in Europe and add demonstrable value in project financings in our core sectors of energy and transport plus their related infrastructure, where we combine our sector knowledge and finance expertise into viable solutions for our clients’ projects.

We advise lenders, DFIs and IFIs, credit support agencies, governments and public bodies, sponsors, developers and contractors – a client list which gives us a 360-degree view of the key commercial drivers and considerations for all stakeholders. A strength is our ability to support new and innovative activities such as the first project financing of a subsidy-free solar park in Italy and the first construction financing via project bonds of a UK offshore wind farm.
