Projects & Energy Department

This content is provided by Bowmans.


We are the leading energy, infrastructure and project finance practice in Africa, with extensive experience in the African power sector. We have a particular focus on thermal, hydro and renewable power by Independent Power Producers (IPPs) and incumbent utilities.

Bowmans’ Project Finance team has expertise across the transaction spectrum, from the private sector (lenders, borrowers, project companies) to the policy implementation level (acting as Government advisors). This places us in a unique position in the marketplace to advise on transactions for any of the parties and to provide a holistic and robust view of all the stakeholder interests at play.

Our value add, over and above our substantial legal skills, expertise and knowledge, is evidenced through our practical understanding of our clients’ businesses and commercial objectives. We have a deep understanding of the commercial environment and business customs in each of the African territories in which we operate.

We continue to act for long-standing institutional clients, including Governments, DFIs and blue-chip clients, who view us as their trusted advisors. The Standard Bank, National Treasury of the Government of South Africa, the Attorney General’s Office in Kenya, Aveng, Rand Merchant Bank and Old Mutual, among others, continue to trust Bowmans as the projects and energy team to handle their most complex and commercially critical projects.
