Overview

Following the lifting of longstanding sanctions on Myanmar, Mayer Brown was one of the first international firms to work on a successful project there, advising Toyo Thai on the Ahlone 121 MW combined- cycle IPP, the first independent power project to be constructed in Myanmar.

Since then, our work has increased in volume and profile, including many first-of-their-kind transactions in the country, such as advising the lenders on the Myingyan 225 MW gas-fired power project, which is Myanmar’s first internationally competitively tendered power project; the country’s first multi-bank project financing; and the most anticipated infrastructure project in Myanmar to date.
