Ports

The ports industry plays a fundamental role in international trade.

The rise of emerging markets and pace of globalisation means that ports are investing large sums to expand facilities to cope with increasing demand for imports and exports. This is at the same time as dealing with issues that have buffeted the wider shipping sector such as rising charter and fuel costs.

Allen & Overy has an impressive track record advising on projects and transactions in the ports sector spanning a range of legal disciplines including acting on a number of high profile mergers and acquisitions and financing transactions. We advise leading sponsors, banks and governments and port operators and regularly top the league tables for the number and value of deals completed in the ports sector.

Our experience of working in this sector allows us to provide our clients with rich and intelligent advice that demonstrates our understanding of all corporate, finance, construction, operational, permitting, zoning, environmental and regulatory issues which are likely to arise during a variety of transactions involving ports.
