Expertise

Infrastructure,
Transportation & Finance

Our Infrastructure, Transportation and Finance practice has broad experience in the structuring, negotiation and closing of financings and refinancings of 4G program toll-road projects, as well as in the financing of massive transportation systems and for the acquisition of electric bus fleet and, in general, projects developed under public-private partnership and concession agreements.  

We have participated in the financings of some of the country’s most relevant projects which involve complex cross border multi-currency and multi-tranche structures, involving bridge loans, syndicated facilities, private placements, issuance of debt securities under Rule 144A/ Reg S, and liquidity facilities, among others.  

We have advised both sponsors and concessionaires, as well as lenders including local and international commercial banks, multilateral entities, private equity funds and debt funds, which allow us to protect the interests of our clients with a very commercial approach.   

We offer our clients a unique blend of multidisciplinary experience and specialization, as we provide the clients with a team dedicated exclusively to these types of projects and that cover all areas of law necessary to achieve the projects’ financial closing, including not only project finance but also corporate law, public procurement, administrative law, budgetary regime, and regulatory advice. Moreover, we have a network of strategic allies with experience in projects’ social matters, environmental law, real estate, and tax law, which allow us to provide comprehensive advice in connection to the projects.   

By leveraging this multidisciplinary approach, which is unique in the market, we are able to provide specialized advice and comprehensively address the legal and commercial risks that may arise in the development of infrastructure and transportation projects and provide practical solutions to our clients to ensure the projects’ bankability.
