For over 25 years we have been involved in many of the largest, most high-profile and “first of their kind” acquisitions, disposals, refinancings, and securitisations in the sector as well as being involved with major construction and operation projects in Indonesia.

We have advised on the establishment, joint operations and financing of airports, roads, seaports, bridges, subways and monorail, telecoms and water projects.

We provide a full range of specialist infrastructure legal services including:

  • drafting and negotiating the full suite of contracting methods;
  • negotiation and documentation of security interests;
  • procurement and project development strategies;
  • advice on contract administration, tendering processes, risk identification and risk allocation; and
  • regulatory issues such as land relinquishment and environmental regulatory compliance.

We believe that we are exceptionally well placed to assist both sponsors and financial institutions alike in this market because we have in-depth sector expertise and the capability to harness our leading acquisition practice with the leading finance team.
