Project financing calls for knowledge of the unique banking, industry and regional considerations affecting a project, and structure terms that take account of such considerations.

We help our clients structure and implement financing for energy, infrastructure, mining, technology, telecommunications and other projects including public-private partnerships (P3). Much of our role involves identifying stakeholder concerns and then working to address potential risks and legal issues that could arise during construction as well as operating phases.


We draw on the expertise of colleagues who can advise clients on the unique industry, regional, securities, environmental, construction, tax and joint venture considerations that are often involved in project finance. If necessary, we help clients resolve disputes through litigation, mediation or arbitration.


We work with lenders, sponsors, investors and suppliers in the public and private sectors in North America as well as in the UK and Africa.


Some of the notable projects we’ve been involved with include a wind energy project in British Columbia, the Pennsylvania Bridges Project in the U.S., and groundbreaking infrastructure projects throughout the U.S., Eastern Europe and South America. Brian Kelsall, a partner in our Toronto office is recognized as one of the Top 25 Project Finance Lawyers in the world.
