We’re in a transformational period in the project finance space. This is due to a growing demand for financed projects with the overlay of the net zero agenda, associated and complementary infrastructure and, within the UK, the national infrastructure strategy.

At Browne Jacobson we’re proud to drive a direct and positive impact on economic and social prosperity through our project finance work.

Our highly-experienced and approachable project finance lawyers advise across the full stakeholder group on private and PPP/PFI project finance transactions and provide a unique offering with a combination of a cutting-edge public sector practice and a sophisticated private sector practice.

Like you, we’re dedicated to achieving net-zero. And we’re here to help you invest in and develop clean energy technology and infrastructures, whilst helping them to navigate increasingly frequent and complex challenges and opportunities.

We’re committed to supporting you with both the commercial and financing aspects of a project. Taking into consideration legal and regulatory requirements and current sector environment to guide you from the structuring of debt and agreement of term sheets through to the negotiation of project finance documentation.

Our integrated and multi-disciplinary team of specialists prides itself on its vast experience in delivering bankable project documents and carrying out due diligence across all project contracts. We combine this expertise with other finance structures to advise on the acquisition of energy and infrastructure assets and the refinancing of operational assets.

Most importantly, we're known for our collaborative approach. For our deep understanding of different stakeholder perspectives plus all commercial and legal requirements. This enables us to consistently provide well-rounded, innovative, solutions focused advice. In multi-layered project structures, we consider this approach to be fundamental to ensuring a smooth and efficient transaction.
