Our experience includes numerous first-of-a-kind projects in Latin America, yielding valuable first-hand knowledge of all the major issues participants may encounter with the development and financing of projects in key jurisdictions. We actively and regularly engage in the representation of creditors and sponsors in the most significant, complex and high-value cross-border project finance transactions in the Latin American market, including refinancings involving private placement and capital markets solutions. Our team advises on project structuring, development, construction, financing, operation, restructuring and expansion in the power (especially renewables), oil and gas, transportation, water, telecommunications and social infrastructure sectors.
