The Multiplicity Factor

tudktd

Cynthia Urda Kassis and Ben Shorten of Shearman & Sterling look at the trend of multi-source financing, which has emerged to bridge the liquidity gap, and examine its impact on projects:

"It needs to be recognised by both sponsors and lenders that highly bespoke financing plans mean that a one-size-fits-all approach based on precedent cannot be followed; flexibility and creativity will need to be employed."

Roundtable: Project Finance 2014

Who’s Who Legal brings together Karen Wong of Milbank Tweed Hadley & McCloy, Filipe Lowndes Marques of Morais Leitão Galvão Teles Soares da Silva & Associados, Robin Abraham of Clifford Chance and Jaime Herrera of Posse Herrera Ruiz to discuss levels and types of project financing, the trend for energy projects, the impact of government investment on the sector, regulatory developments and changes in the legal market in their jurisdiction.

Project Finance in an Ever-Changing World

rgasty

Phillip Fletcher of Milbank Tweed Hadley & McCloy reviews recent developments in project financing around the globe:

"The ultimate judgement call in a project finance transaction is whether a particular risk, and the means available to mitigate it, is 'bankable'. As long as the markets in which we operate continue to evolve in the face of changing economic, political, technological and social circumstances, helping sponsors and lenders to reach that sort of judgement will continue to be challenging and good fun."

Spotlight on Oman

ett

Graham Mouat and Ravinder Singh of Al Busaidy Mansoor Jamal & Co take an in-depth look at project financing in Oman, which currently has projects worth over US$125 billion planned or under way:

"The legislative and regulatory framework has evolved, and continues to evolve, to provide security and protection to project financier’s interests. It also provides incentives including the creation of registered, perfected, first priority security interests for the benefit of project finance lenders."

A Very Bright Light: Project Finance in Canada

vb

Brian C Kelsall of Fasken Martineau DuMoulin takes a closer look at the Canadian project finance market.

"Although Canada has been affected by some of the market turmoil that has spread across Europe and the United States, its strong economic performance, conservative banking system and careful deficit control has allowed Canada to continue to remain a very bright light in the projects and PPP market worldwide."

Analysis: Project Finance

Legal Marketplace Analysis: Project Finance 2014

This year we identify 529 practitioners from 231 firms and 79 countries who are considered leading lawyers in this field. Several firms particularly stand out due to the number of listings they achieve, with Clifford Chance once again boasting more practitioners than any other firm. Following closely behind is Allen & Overy, whose London office is especially well represented. US-founded firms Milbank Tweed Hadley & McCloy and White & Case both boast a strong number of inclusions.

We also single out the most highly regarded individuals in the EMEA, the Americas and Asia-Pacific regions, with Latham & Watkins being home to four of these lawyers.

Research: Trends & Conclusions

Project finance is the preserve of the elite. The practice requires skilled banking and finance lawyers who can assist parties in reaching a workable consensus in complex negotiations, and who also have a sufficiently strong understanding of project development to identify any risks. As their work increasingly stems from emerging markets in the East, access to the resources of a large international firm is a definite advantage.

Most Highly Regarded Firms: Project Finance 2013

In this section we analyse the findings of our research in greater depth to identify the firms and practitioners who performed most strongly overall. Clifford Chance emerges as the most recognised firm in our research, with 27 of its lawyers featured from offices in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the US. It is followed by Allen & Overy which fields 22 lawyers, with Dubai emerging as its largest stronghold of talent. The "greatly respected" Milbank Tweed Hadley & McCloy, international "heavyweight" Latham & Watkins and "globally renowned" White & Case each achieve an impressive number of listings, with practitioners from their offices around the world recognised for their expertise in this area.

Research Trends & Conclusions: Project Finance 2013

Who’s Who Legal analyses the recent trends and developments in the global project finance legal market. Our research uncovered that the past year has given lawyers a taste of what one source called “a world without banks”. The absence of traditional project lending from banks around the world, and in Europe in particular, has obliged clients and lawyers to look elsewhere for funding. The increased role of the public sector in lending has meant a greater emphasis on governmental influence in the projects, while the emerging markets have continued to show their huge potential, with clients appearing increasingly keen to expand into Africa and less-developed countries in Asia.
