A pioneer in project finance for three decades, Simpson Thacher has built an active international practice. Our lawyers have represented clients on all sides of innovative project finance transactions—including natural resource financings and other nonrecourse (including leveraged lease) financings of power plants, wind facilities, pipelines, gas storage facilities, oil and gas liquefaction and other facilities and infrastructure worldwide.
A hallmark of Simpson Thacher is our belief in collaboration—and the benefits of breadth that only a multidisciplinary law firm can offer. In project finance, our lawyers’ skills meld with other areas of the Firm’s knowledge, including its utilities, energy, telecommunications, mergers and acquisitions, restructuring and litigation practices. The result is an integrated approach to solving clients’ needs.
Because the Firm represents the full spectrum of participants in project finance transactions, we see the big picture. Our lawyers are well-equipped to advise clients on structuring transactions that accommodate the requirements of banks, underwriters and other public and private institutions. In addition, we have played a principal role in the organization of funds that invest in emerging-market infrastructure projects.
