Practices

Project Finance

We take an integrated approach to project finance, counseling clients on the regulatory issues, financing options, transactional considerations, and litigation avoidance strategies necessary when embarking on a capital-heavy project. The Finance team works with colleagues versed in key areas, such as tax, construction and development, environmental regulation, labor and employment, corporate law, and government relations.

Our project finance lawyers represent investors, sponsors, and lenders, including commercial banks, DFIs, MLAs, and private equity companies. We also do a heavy volume of project finance work on behalf of independent power producers, federal and state governments and government-sponsored enterprises, manufacturing companies, and developers.
