Project Finance and Infrastructure
Our members help clients structure, finance and manage complex domestic and cross-border projects that boost economic growth.
Positive economic growth rests on a solid foundation: infrastructure. Ally Law member firms have the experience, resources, and geographic reach to help privately held and publicly traded companies, investors, developers and government entities develop effective partnerships and manage complex domestic and cross-border projects.
Our member firm lawyers represent clients across the Americas, Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa, providing effective, practical counsel at every step. We regularly advise clients on initial project planning; investment and tax-exempt financing; structuring and formation of appropriate business entities and joint ventures; and negotiating, closing and monitoring construction contracts and management agreements.
We have advised clients on the full range of project-financing arrangements, including letters of credit; conventional construction and term loans; debt securities; sale-leasebacks; leveraged, synthetic and single-investor leases; joint ventures and public-private partnerships (P3s); private placements; tax-exempt financing and tax credits; and a range of government-sponsored and related programs managed by national and international development and aid agencies.
We have represented clients involved in infrastructure projects of all types, including the following:
• Airport, highway, railway and other transportation-related projects
• Water and sewer facilities
• Seaports and distribution facilities
• Hydroelectric, renewable energy and coal-fired power-generation facilities
• Oil and gas exploration, refining and distribution facilities, including pipelines
• Entertainment and sports venues
We recognize that large-scale projects often give rise to additional, related issues. Working with lawyers from across our member firms, we provide coordinated counsel on environmental regulations and compliance; real estate and construction law; labor and employment issues; workplace health and safety; insurance and reinsurance; and government contracting. When domestic and cross-border disputes arise, we draw on the skills of local, experienced litigators to provide effective, solution-focused representation in court and in arbitration and mediation.
