Project finance lawyers deal with large-scale developments, like a gasoline pipeline or a nuclear power generator. Project finance usually involves very large sums of money, with the development's future income used to repay the financing. Project financing can involve multiple banks and lenders, with varying degrees of risk. It is a complicated process, and with so much at stake it must be carefully structured and documented. Project finance lawyers possess a unique blend of finance, business, securities, and insurance law knowledge, and will be very helpful if you are involved in this type of development.
