Project Finance

Our lawyers have a wide range of experience in project finance transactions.  We also have a deep understanding of various financing transactions and techniques applied to the financing of projects, having advised on a wide range of international project and public finance transactions.

We assist our clients in preliminary reviews of structuring options for their projects, examination of different funding sources, acquisition of the appropriate level of technical advice for their projects and their dealings with municipal, regional and federal governments, as well as advising them on the regulatory requirements for their projects.

…there were a few moments when we thought that we would never find common ground and complete the transaction…it was your recommendations and attention to detail which left a very professional impression on our counterparty and made them somewhat more trusting and agreeable.
…uncanny ability to find an original angle others have not thought of…
