As a sponsor, lender or public sector organisation, you require legal advisers who can help you successfully handle complex energy infrastructure transactions and the financing of energy infrastructure. Whether you are in the public sector or private sector and whether you are in the electricity generation, mining, transport, health, education, waste, defense, IT/telecoms, leisure, custodial and justice, ports, rail, roads or water industries, you will get the legal advice you need from us on your energy solutions.
As Sub-Saharan Africa economies grow at greater rates of growth than most other regions, and as the growth is for the most part off a low base with little energy infrastructure, Sub-Saharan Africa is in a perfect position to embrace energy solutions which minimize its contribution to climate change.
We work in multi-disciplinary teams working closely with CMS lawyers in the rest of Africa, the United Kingdom, Western, Central and Eastern Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and Asia. This enables us to provide our clients with proven expertise across the entire spectrum of the energy sector and to enable you to take advantage of the opportunities for energy solutions for Sub-Saharan Africa to catalyse further economic growth in the region and to meet its growing energy needs whilst minimizing the region’s contribution to climate change.
