Energy, Mining & Infrastructure - EMI

  • Description

    The continuing need for energy and infrastructure assets to be developed or replaced means investment is required on a global scale. Estimates by the International Energy Agency suggest there will be upwards of USD 68 trillion invested in the world energy sector from 2015 to 2040. With traditional public funding avenues now insufficient, creativity and innovation is required to help realize the next generation of projects.

    These large-scale schemes require cross-border experience and the ability to devise tailored solutions to both domestic and international challenges. Working seamlessly across 47 countries, we can help clients to structure, acquire, finance and implement projects, and manage their investments, whether in developed, developing or transition countries.

    Building on our wealth of experience in this sector - we have been specializing in energy, mining and infrastructure projects for more than 70 years – we understand the needs of both investors and financiers. Our transactional capability, coupled with our broad-ranging skills in finance, corporate, tax, and environmental and competition law, means we can deliver commercially effective solutions at every stage of the process.

    By combining an uncompromising commitment to excellence with our results-driven outlook, we can deliver high quality local law services in more jurisdictions across the globe than any other law firm. Thanks to our collaborative approach, we can provide the following energy and infrastructure-related legal services:
