Overview

Our projects group is recognised for its extensive experience advising on all aspects of projects work across the power, renewable energy and oil and gas sectors involving transport and other significant infrastructure.

We regularly act for sponsors, project companies, financiers, governments and financial advisers on projects in the UK and around the world, including Africa, Western, Central and Eastern Europe, the Indian subcontinent and Asia.
