Project Finance

The Project Finance team specialises in handling all manner of infrastructure and energy projects on behalf of banks and sponsors in Spain and abroad.

 

Our clients include not only traditional Spanish and international banks, but also many key players in the infrastructure and energy sectors.

Project finance in Spain remains subdued, with a relatively low volume of transactions in the market on a par with a noticeable decrease in infrastructure projects due to government budget constraints. In response to this, we have sought to maintain a very high level of activity through close relations with traditional investors as well as building relationships with new players in the project finance market.

From the infrastructure side, we have advised the whole spectrum of the top Spanish and Portuguese financial institutions and developers associated with this sector and Spanish, Portuguese and foreign investment funds in the acquisition of consolidated infrastructure or packages of financial assets linked to the operation of such infrastructure.

 

We have also provided services to all types of public authorities and public sector bodies on the best way of legally structuring, making financially viable and tendering their concession projects or PPP.

Another key area of the team’s focus is the energy market where we have successfully combined our regulatory and public law expertise with our finance capabilities, with the result that we now represent a large number of the main specialist Spanish and pan-European renewable energy underwriters, financial institutions and operators.
