What the team is known for

Shearman & Sterling is well equipped to handle cross-border M&A, financing and project development matters on a truly global scale. Its integrated practice across offices in North and Latin America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East combines to efficiently perform as lead counsel on multi-jurisdictional matters. It maintains relationships with an extensive variety of firms for the provision of local law advice outside the USA and Europe.

The firm opened new offices in Houston and Austin in 2018, reflecting its growing prominence as a firm of choice for major US oil and gas companies across their full spectrum of needs. This builds on the success of the firm's international energy project financing practice, which brings together US and UK law experts around the world with significant experience advising on financing for Latin American, African and Middle Eastern assets.

Strengths

One source highlights: "The Shearman & Sterling project finance team is very knowledgeable and has significant experience in Latin America," and another praises the team's "attention to detail, turnaround time, and ability to fill in for each other when needed."
