Allen & Overy advised the APCA Transmimetro consortium, comprised of China Harbour Engineering Company and Xi’An Metro Company, in their successful bid for the Bogotá Metro project. Over the course of the next 20 years, this project will establish the first sophisticated metro system in Bogotá stretching from Bosa to Chapinero, catering to more than one million passengers per day.

“We’re honored to have advised on this groundbreaking deal that will bring much needed infrastructure development to the community in Bogotá,” said Dorina Yessios, partner in A&O’s Latin America practice. “As the project continues, we look forward to helping drive forward the consortium’s mission.”

The transaction was jointly led by our U.S.-based Latin America practice and our Beijing office. The team included partners Dorina Yessios in New York, Sami Mir in Washington, D.C., Ling Li in Beijing, senior associate Xue Wang in Tokyo, as well as other lawyers across A&O’s global network in Beijing, New York and London.
