Large-scale projects are subject to a range of challenges, including structuring and financing issues; government regulations; construction, feedstock, offtake and other contractual issues; local law coordination; and other elements that cross national and international boundaries, including critical elements of political risk. Clients rely on us to help them achieve their most ambitious project goals.
When we work with our clients on these projects, we provide more than just international and, in many cases, local legal advice. We provide business, strategic, and cultural advice in assisting our clients in structuring, negotiating and documenting the full array of project and financing agreements tailored to each client’s needs and the customs of the local jurisdictions. We are also able to provide risk management advice to assist clients in their business strategies.
We are a well-established Paris-based law firm with a strong global footprint and reach for project development and project finance transactions. Providing New York, English, French, Islamic and other local law advice, our global project development, and finance group possesses the foresight, flexibility and experience to deliver results under the most challenging conditions.
We have an outstanding worldwide reputation for delivering on complex domestic and cross-border transactions, and regularly advise sponsors and developers on matters that span the full life-cycle of projects—from acquisition or development to financing and hedging to construction, completion and operation.
Our clients benefit from our deep understanding and experience in all of the major sectors such as power generation and transmission (including thermal power, nuclear energy and all forms of renewable energy), oil and gas (including liquefied natural gas (LNG) and petrochemicals), infrastructure (including roads, airports, bridges, railways, ports and social infrastructure), mining and metals, water and wastewater treatment, telecommunications (including towers, wireless, landline and satellites) and large multi-use commercial and residential construction projects often tied to marina, rail stations or other industries.
