Our project finance team is a central part of our London and international practices, and includes lawyers based in both London and the Middle East. The team is a high profile and rapidly expanding part of our projects and infrastructure practices, liaising with both public and private sector clients including, in the UK, public sector bodies, PFI bidders & providers and funders and, in the Middle East, equity providers, private sector project developers, lenders, other funders, ECAs and host governments. The team's unique strength is supported by its extensive knowledge and unique experience of public sector requirements coupled with private sector demands.
