SyCipLaw assumed prominence in infrastructure work in the ‘80s, when it assisted the government in its industrialization program, involving a steel manufacturing plant, a phosphate fertilizer processing plant and a copper smelting facility. The practice has since grown to include work on the first private light rail transit project in the country, representing both developers and financiers of telecommunications projects in the mid-‘90s, and active involvement in toll road and airport terminal projects. It has also advised developers of water supply projects and has gained particular expertise in dealings with municipal water districts.

The firm has a long and intensive involvement in projects for private energy production, commencing with the development of the first power plant undertaken on a build-operate-transfer basis in the Philippines. We have participated in almost all of the Philippine independent power projects, representing a combined capacity of more than 6,000 MW. These include the largest coal-fired, gas-fired, and diesel stations in the country, as well as hydroelectric and geothermal plants. The firm also represents distribution utilities in relation to their long-term power supply agreements and the conduct of competitive selection processes as required by law.

Our firm has also acted as principal legal consultant to independent power projects in Thailand, Pakistan, Indonesia, Vietnam, China and other countries in the region.
