Well-established name in the outbound project financing market, with an Asian presence recently enhanced by the opening of a Seoul office. Noted for its impressive representation of syndicates of ECAs, multilateral agencies and banks as well as energy producers and construction companies in high-value power generation and oil and gas projects in Asia and further afield. Well placed to advise on projects-related mandates in any part of the world, thanks to its 23-office global network.

A second interviewee supports the firm's candidacy for multi-jurisdictional projects mandates, citing the "smooth internal communication between teams across Seoul, London and Singapore" and the "strong industry-specific teams in every sector."

Work highlights
