- Significant Matters
We are recognised for our expertise in project finance in energy, resources, utilities and infrastructure in Sub-Saharan Africa.
A key driver our success is our ability to assemble and integrate teams with skills in structured debt finance, equity finance, construction, operations, real estate, through-put supply arrangements, tax and regulated markets.
Our project finance lawyers have in-depth experience in structured financings on a limited recourse basis or with limited recourse features, whether involving bilateral or multi-lateral lending arrangements and or multi-source financings including export credit guarantees and financings.
Whether working independently as lead counsel for the lenders or for the project sponsors, or as local or co-counsel in co-operation with international counsel in its role as lead lender or project counsel, we are able to provide end-to-end legal expertise to meet and promote clients’ requirements.
We have had a leading role in many of the most significant and high profile projects in Sub-Saharan Africa notwithstanding the persistent lag in the roll out of infrastructure development across the region. Our on-the-ground presence together with our project finance expertise and integrated service approach works well particularly for clients who share our vision for Africa’s sustained prosperity.
Our clients include banks and other financial institutions, developers, sponsors, contractors, state-owned utilities and enterprises and government agencies.
