Our Projects Practice Group has been, and is, involved in a number of high profile transactions, many of which are the first of their kind in South Africa. The team works on limited recourse finance and non-recourse finance transactions. Included in these transactions are public private partnerships (PPPs) or public sector concession transactions, as well as transactions that are based solely in the private sector.

The sectors in which this team works include:

  • information technology;
  • mining;
  • casino;
  • energy;
  • transport (such as rail, road and ports);
  • prisons;
  • health; and
  • accommodation.

The team has successfully advised a number of tendering consortia in respect of tenders for PPPs or public sector concessions and as preferred bidder to financial close. The team has experience in advising all participants in project finance transactions, such as the lenders or the sponsors or the concession grantor or individual sub-contractors.
