The group advises sponsors, project and construction companies, governments and lenders on projects and project financings around the world. We provide our clients with an integrated service in all aspects of project work, drawing on and marshalling our specialist skills in all areas of law.

Our lawyers are praised for their technical ability, commercial approach and comprehensive service. We routinely advise on project structures, conduct legal due diligence exercises, advise on risk allocation and review the “bankability” of project agreements.

Allen & Overy is independently recognised as a global leader in projects. Since the league table began in 2000 we have consistently closed more project finance deals globally than any other law firm.
