Project Finance

Our projects and infrastructure finance group advises clients on cross-border, multi-jurisdictional projects.

We advise public and private sector bodies (including funders) on a wide range of domestic and international projects and at all levels of the supply chain including government, sponsors, project companies, EPC and D&B contractors, multi-laterals, funders, banks and alternative lenders.

We are able to anticipate, and importantly to understand, issues and problems that may arise during the course of a project and find constructive solutions to them.
