Energy and Infrastructure
Our team includes leading lawyers across the firm network who have a track record of successfully delivering first-rate legal services in all segments of the infrastructure and energy industries.
We understand the commercial, strategic, technical, geographical and political factors that shape and impact these industries, and the business issues and risks inherent when working in these sectors. Our market leading presence also allows us first-hand access to contacts, sponsors and key decision makers.
Oil and Gas
For nearly 20 years, our oil and gas team has been engaged in every aspect of the industry working across the upstream, midstream and downstream sectors. Our oil and gas practice has advised international oil companies, governments, sponsors and lenders on a broad range of matters including acquisitions and disposals, farm-ins and farm-outs, joint ventures and JOAs, PSAs, financings (on a limited recourse, reserve-based or other secured/structured basis), sale and supply arrangements, storage, trading, transportation, fracking and LNG. Our Practice continues to grow and we are involved in many of the major energy projects currently undertaken locally.
Power and Transmission
Over the last three years, our Power and Transmission Practice has grown substantially and we are now involved in many of the major projects. Our dedicated lawyers focus on transactions both in their domestic markets and internationally, with particular reference to emerging markets.
Our lawyers advise on the purchase and sale of existing power assets, as well as on the siting, development, permitting and financing of power projects, both thermal and renewable. We act for local governments, sponsors and lenders across a range of matters, from the development, construction and financing of power projects to issues related to transmission and distribution networks. We address the complex issues facing any large-scale power generation project as well as the project finance, corporate and regulatory background necessary to move any project from conception to execution.
Our lawyers have more than two decades of experience in the infrastructure market and act for both sponsors and lenders in a wide range of limited recourse financing transactions. We have broad experience of PPP/PFI transactions and thorough knowledge of several market sectors, including power (thermal and renewable), transport (roads, airports and shipping), oil and gas.
We take a proactive role in understanding project economics and are skilled at crafting innovative solutions to mitigate credit risks.
