Our broad array of experience spans several industries, including oil and gas (upstream, midstream, and downstream), power generation and renewables, infrastructure (roads, bridges, ports, airports, parking, sewers, and water), mining and metals, sports and entertainment, and transportation, among others.

Full-Service Project Development and Finance Capabilities
We have represented clients through all stages of a project’s development, including planning, acquisition, construction, financing and refinancing, and operations. We are experienced in structuring, drafting, and negotiating the complex contractual arrangements required to construct and operate projects and to obtain debt financing. And our international tax lawyers routinely advise on tax minimization structures for major projects around the world. 

Unique Government Affairs and Public Policy Support
We also use our extensive insight about the workings of governments around the world to provide practical project development advice. Our clients benefit from the experience of our more than 120 former government officials, diplomats, and regulators, who work seamlessly with our teams of litigators, regulatory lawyers, and deal makers.

Our team also advises companies around the world on regulatory compliance, particularly sanctions and anti-corruption/FCPA laws, and conducts special investigations. Our litigation teams and International Arbitration practice are well positioned to help project development and finance clients resolve the most complex disputes. We have represented major corporations in some of their most significant disputes, including lawsuits and arbitrations involving multi-billion dollar controversies.
