Our market-leading experience of sustainable finance, project finance and in particular, green bonds, has resulted in our team advising on many “first-in-jurisdiction” transactions.
Investors are now demanding more than the traditional financing options and are increasingly seeking responsible financing structures such as green bonds, social impact bonds and sustainability bonds. The tax incentives offered in the form of exemptions and credits, are resulting in a widening pool of investors who are not only looking to support environmental outcomes, but are also making investments that make good business sense.
Our dedicated team of lawyers across our global platform have extensive experience and knowledge that covers a vast range of industries and includes acting for issuers, investors, intermediaries and financial service providers. Our fully integrated legal approach to domestic and international projects and transactions allows our lawyers to find innovative, commercial and financial solutions and tax-efficient structures, which not only maximize the return on investment, but also deliver projects that provide environmental and social benefits.
Our global team combines the disciplines required to take a project or investment from inception to completion and beyond, and we are dedicated to providing our clients with seamless, sophisticated and forward-thinking advice, wherever they are in the world.
