Our “one-firm’ approach to cross-border deals sets us apart. Some of our international experience includes advising Benchmark Power International S.A.E on the development, review and negotiation of power purchase agreement and gas sale contracts for a 2300MW independent power plant project with the Egyptian Electricity Transmission Company in Egypt. To the best of our knowledge, this was the largest single thermal electric power project in Africa in 2015. We have also been consistently ranked as Top Tier by the International Financial Law Review and Legal 500 in the energy sector.
