Infrastructure, Energy & Projects

Infrastructure, Energy & Projects

The Infrastructure, Energy & Projects team comprises of a core team of seasoned directors and other lawyers with a unique combination of expertise in advising on infrastructure projects across all sectors, including the energy, road, rail, water, defence, technology and mining sectors.

The team works closely with our corporate, tax, regulatory, finance, construction, environment, property and dispute resolution teams and advises developers, sponsors and lenders on both the corporate and financing aspects of such projects. Our expertise allow us to advise on local and international projects, ensuring compliance with South African law and International Best Practice.

We possess the expertise required to conduct legal due diligence on projects and to draft all forms of contracts associated with projects. These include shareholder and related agreements, financing agreements, construction agreements, property agreements and sector specific supply agreements such as power purchase and similar agreements.

The members of the Infrastructure, Energy & Projects team have a thorough knowledge of the construction and engineering aspects which apply to energy and infrastructure projects and we draft all forms of construction and engineering agreements on a daily basis. We also have significant experience in the regulatory aspects of construction and engineering projects.

We have been and continue to be involved in the financing and refinancing of infrastructure projects across all key sectors and are therefore aware of and are familiar with the latest requirements and issues relating to the funding of these projects.
