Power and water

Our award-winning Energy and Infrastructure team is a market leader in assisting clients to deliver and finance large-scale projects across the Middle East

Our Middle East power and water expertise is unmatched. We have had a role in 14 of the 16 IPPs / IWPPs (independent power / water projects) to have closed in the region as at early 2007. We advised the sponsors of each of the first IPP / IWPPs in Oman, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia. We have won awards for our work in this sector, and are ranked in the top ten power and water legal advisers for the Middle East.

Our clients include international and regional private sector developers, as well as government entities and consultants active in the sectors. We also advise lenders and secondary market investors. We are very familiar with using Islamic finance in successfully completing IWPPs and have had substantial involvement in ECA financings for power and water projects.

Our teams of specialists have worked with clients located throughout the Middle East, notably in Saudi Arabia, Abu Dhabi, Oman, Jordan, Iran, Sudan and Kuwait. The firm has been retained as counsel on some of the most prominent power and water projects and transactions in the region.
