Maximising the return on investment in capital intensive assets requires complex judgments about business needs, tax and accounting rules. It also involves a variety of legal issues – often across multiple jurisdictions with conflicting laws. Our extensive experience in equipment and facility finance transactions, as well as the depth of our resources in multiple jurisdictions around the world, gives our clients a unique advantage in these matters.
We have been involved in most significant developments in the cross-border market for equipment and facility financing regionally, and we have helped pioneer many of the tax, legal and financial structures used in countries around the world.
The international nature of our practice has enabled us to develop particular experience in advising on cross-border or international mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, licensing and distribution arrangements and criminal investigations.
We provide guidance on a broad range of capital equipment and facility financings, and are particularly active in:
Drilling platforms and rigs
Nuclear power simulators and generating assets
Electricity generation, distribution and transmission equipment and facilities
Gas distribution and transmission equipment and facilities
Oil and chemical storage facilities
