Frontline insights from APAC's biggest projects. No recordings.

What could you achieve with the inside track on APAC’s projects market?

A&O’s lawyers are in the deal rooms of APAC’s biggest projects, so they know what’s happening in APAC’s projects market right now. And when it comes to what’s around the corner for those markets, our lawyers are talking to the main players every day — sponsors, developers, regulators, lenders, investors.

Periodically, our most experienced lawyers step out of those deal rooms to brief the members of our Projects Academy. These briefings are loaded with insights from the frontlines. And because we’re talking about fluid situations, Projects Academy sessions are never recorded.


If you want to know what’s happening in APAC’s projects markets right now, you need to be in the room.

What can you expect as a member of A&O’s APAC Projects Academy?

From time to time, lawyers across A&O’s 13 APAC offices meet to decide what every practitioner must know to be effective in today’s project markets. Their decisions about hot topics come from working across APAC on projects that make headlines — projects riding trends and setting precedents.

Our regional coverage makes it possible for A&O Projects Academy sessions to balance APAC-wide analysis with country-specific depth. Every insight earned through experience.

As a member of the Projects Academy, you can expect your presenters to go deep on topics like:

  • Emerging regional trends that could lay the track for your projects (or derail them)
  • APAC’s hottest assets and geographies
  • The legal risks affecting investor appetites and project bankability right now
  • Deal terms that are no longer negotiable
  • The secrets to structuring deals in a volatile world

And as a member of A&O’s Projects Academy, you’ll have the opportunity to get real-world answers to your questions.

Previous sessions have covered:

  • Construction and services contracts
  • Energy and infrastructure
  • Interconnector projects
  • Investment treaty arbitration
  • LNG-to-power
  • Offtake contracts
  • Power purchase agreements
  • Projects-related financings
  • Renewables

Who should be a member of A&O’s APAC Projects Academy?
