Using a multidisciplinary approach to project finance, we integrate the diverse capabilities of our multiple areas of practice to meet the specific requirements of our clients. Our firm has represented a wide range of lenders – such as commercial banks, development banks, and investment funds – as well as debtors from different sectors, agents and trustees. We have extensive experience in different industries, including oil and gas, energy (wind, solar, hydroelectric and thermic), and transport (highways, railways, airports and seaports).
We actively participate in every stage of the infrastructure project with a “one-stop shop” approach. Our work encompasses the bankability analysis of the project contracts, the elaboration of risk matrixes and their mitigation factors, the due diligence of the entities involved, designing contractual structures and the security packages. Our multidisciplinary approach enables a comprehensive evaluation of projects to be financed throughout all phases, including the pre-operating stage, commissioning, operation and maintenance, including in such evaluation an analysis of environmental, social, tax, regulatory and permitting matters, in addition to those related to easement negotiations and land, acquisition processes, among others.
The firms’ experience includes different structures, such as concessions (self-sustainable and co-financed), public-private partnership schemes (PPP) and bilateral contracts with public and private entities, including different retribution mechanisms such as payments for work progress (PAO), payments for operation and maintenance (PAMO) and similar structures.
