Project Finance, Infrastructure & Natural Resources

In collaboration with more than 100 lawyers operating in key energy and financial centers around the world, Morgan Lewis’s project finance and infrastructure team advises on project development and finance; mergers, acquisitions, and joint ventures; capital markets transactions; the full range of corporate and securities matters for utility systems; and regulatory and compliance issues. We offer practical, thoughtful, and informed advice on some of the world’s most complex and significant energy transactions.

Our team advises clients in various sectors, including conventional and renewable power; nuclear power; electrical transmission; upstream, midstream, and downstream oil and gas; pipelines and liquefied natural gas (LNG); public-private partnerships (PPPs); and energy infrastructure and telecommunications projects.

We regularly represent all types of participants in project financings and energy and infrastructure acquisition financings, refinancings, and debt offerings. Our team has developed and structured virtually every type of project in the energy and infrastructure space, and has drafted, negotiated, and advised on the forms of agreements necessary to properly structure a project finance transaction. We represent a dynamic range of clients, including project developers, equity investors, sponsors, major and independent oil and gas companies, public utilities (investor owned and government run), independent power producers, lenders, insurance companies and other institutional debt investors, and financial and strategic equity investors.
