The privatization of infrastructure and other key industries in Brazil have given rise to intense private-sector participation. Consistent with that trend and in light of the significant capital required to undertake infrastructure projects, we created a practice group specializing in project finance, which would provide alternatives to traditional forms of indebtedness.
Our Project Finance practice group, which is organized to meet the needs of any participant in the infrastructure sector, their assisting sponsors, multilateral agencies, and national and foreign investors, has become internationally recognized for the vital role it has played in facilitating substantial projects.
Our multidisciplinary Project Finance practice group has wide experience in matters involving financing and insurance, as well as in connection with regulatory issues affecting the involved relevant industries and projects. In addition to reviewing project contracts for financing alternatives, we also advise on the structuring and negotiation of contracts, including Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) and Operation and Maintenance agreements (O&M), fuel supply and input agreements, and the purchase and sale of energy, steam, sugar, and ethanol, among other commodities.
