Global Energy, Mining & Infrastructure

Sophisticated and seamless


USD3 trillion are needed each year to replace or expand energy and infrastructure assets (according to OECD). Traditional public funding is insufficient and current economic conditions will exacerbate the challenges of funding this global investment need. These large energy, mining and infrastructure investments are frequently cross-border and call for innovation and creativity in their realization, with a need to draw on international experience and best practices, and an ability to transpose those skills and practices to meet the local practices and norms in the host country.

At Baker & McKenzie, we have been specializing in international energy, mining and infrastructure projects worldwide for over 60 years. Working seamlessly across our 74 offices in 46 countries, we can help clients to structure, acquire, finance and implement projects and manage their investments, whether in developed, developing or transition countries. We understand the needs of investors, financiers and other key stakeholders in large scale projects. With our local know-how and relationships, transactional capability and broad-ranging skills in finance, corporate, tax, environmental and competition law, we can deliver integrated cross-border legal services that are unrivaled. Our ultimate aim is to efficiently provide commercially effective solutions at every stage.
