Department profile submitted by Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP
Milbank is one of the world's leading law firms for cross-border financing and project financing, with particularly strong experience in Emerging Markets including Latin America. Milbank is the only international firm with a project finance practice consistently recognized across all industries and in each country in Latin America where project financings occur, whereas our competitors each work only in a limited scope of countries or sectors.
We have successfully represented the leading players – including debt and equity investors, private sponsors and government lenders – in their most important and high-profile financings throughout Latin America. Our work has focused on power and energy projects (including renewable energy), oil/gas projects (upstream and downstream), a wide range of infrastructure projects, including roads, highways, bridges, rail systems, airports, and mining, and telecommunications projects, among many others.
Milbank is also active in leverage financing transactions involving Latin America where an increasing number of acquisitions are financed with cross-border bank and capital markets debt.
Our team is fully bilingual, including a large team of native Portuguese and Spanish speakers.
