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 77 offices in 47 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.

Russia has pitched for the extension of an agreement giving employees and trade unions additional guarantees and rights, including higher compensation and greater union participation, to cover companies in the chemical, petrochemical, biotechnological and chemical-pharmaceutical sectors. Relevant employers have until 6 March 2015 to send a written refusal.
The US Environmental Protection Agency recently released the highly anticipated final Clean Power Plan aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions from existing fossil fuel-fired electric generating units. As the first-ever national standards to address carbon dioxide from power plants, the Clean Power Plan, once implemented, will accelerate the transformation of the electricity system in the United States.
