Project finance

Since the change in the financial environment, our clients have been even more conscious about the way they financially structure or restructure their major projects.  Coupled with restraints on public spending in developed economies, we have seen a push for innovative methods of financing and a shift in focus to developing markets.  Now more than ever, the emerging markets are fuelling the global project finance market with a healthy amount of infrastructure and energy projects in the pipeline.

Clyde & Co advises on international project finance matters throughout the world and handles the full range of multi-national project finance initiatives in both the public and private sectors.  Our in depth experience includes advising on all aspects of a financing arrangement for the full range of projects (including oil, gas, power, infrastructure, transport and water projects).   

Our project finance lawyers have advised clients in many different jurisdictions and we focus on the locations where our clients need us to go.  Clyde & Co's project finance team offer local experience and knowledge with the support of an international firm. 

We appreciate that our clients need the support of advisers that assist on all aspects of a project.  Our project finance lawyers work closely with our construction lawyers to give you access to advice on the financial elements of a PPP or PFI (whether you procure project services, supply them or fund them). 

We know the importance of getting to grips with both the legal and commercial priorities and giving first rate service. Our project finance lawyers provide commercial and practical solutions and are familiar with alternative and innovative models of financing a PPP, PFI or major project. 

Our project finance team also advises lenders on major IPP's and IWP's, project finance restructurings and acts for major banks and trading companies.  We also have wide experience of working with a range of ECA and MLA funders, including JBIC. 

Our lawyers are familiar with drafting and negotiating finance agreements, facility agreements, turnkey contracts, off-take agreements, investor documents and sponsor support arrangements. 

Many of our project finance lawyers have experience in other areas of finance including acquisition finance, real estate finance, trade and commodity finance, offering you access to the broad spectrum of finance related advice.
