Project Finance


Attorney practicing in the area of Project Finance assist in just that—the financing of large construction projects, often in the energy sector (dams, power plants, wind farms) or infrastructure (railroads, airports, canals). Because the projects are large and complex, they are document intensive and can take a long time to close. Project finance attorneys deal with the negotiation and drafting of financing documents, generally involving many companies and often government entities partnering on one deal. The practice often has a significant international bent to it and can be a good area of law for international or multilingual attorneys and those who enjoy international travel. Attorneys regularly interact with multinational corporations, sources of private equity, large banks, and international government agencies and the ability to negotiate with these disparate actors is key to this practice.
