Nick Ross-McCall is a partner with over fifteen years’ experience representing sponsors and lenders on the development and financing of energy and infrastructure projects globally. He focuses on:

  • Power projects, both renewables/green energy and thermal (including nuclear).
  • Upstream oil and gas, including reserve based lending where he has advised on deals including assets in most of the major oil & gas basins.

Nick also has significant experience across the midstream and downstream oil and gas sectors (including LNG, pipelines and petchems), of oil & gas M&A and commercial work (including field decommissioning arrangements), and of infrastructure projects (including PFI/PPP). He was seconded to the project finance team of a leading commercial bank in 2011-2.

Nick’s clients include energy project sponsors/developers, oil & gas majors and independents (including private equity backed vehicles), and commercial and international development banks. He has cutting edge experience of all the major debt finance solutions available to fund energy projects and E&P companies including structured/project finance facilities, acquisition finance, portfolio financings, holdco finance, corporate and reserve based senior facilities, junior debt, high yield/convertible/Norwegian bonds, prepayment facilities, export credit finance and other commodities trading/finance. He also has expertise in multi-source financings and Islamic finance.

Nick was also featured in A Word About Wind’s Legal Power List, which sets out the top 100 lawyers globally (covering both private practice and in-house counsel) working in the wind sector.
