Infrastructure: 

Our expertise covers project structuring and risk allocation, public-private partnerships (PPPs), real estate and conveyancing and advisory entirely.   

We have participated in structuring of complex infrastructure projects in Uganda including financing of agribusinesses, renewable energy and power, transport and commercial buildings. Additionally, our practice covers each type of role in a transaction–from representation of public sector entities, EPC contractors and sponsors to lenders. Our functionality allows us to mobilize an experienced and integrated team to advise our clients on infrastructure projects across all major sectors.

Our multidisciplinary approach brings together a team of lawyers in such areas as finance and securitization, government regulatory, corporate and securities, real estate, tax, private equity and infrastructure funds to serve the range of client needs in this area. This is coupled with our detailed knowledge and understanding of the local regulatory environment and labour law and global mobility constraints.

We also possess the local knowledge required to support clients identify, analyse, negotiate and document legal and financing structures for the development, financing, acquisition, delivery, commissioning and operation of infrastructure projects.
