Banking and Finance
A core decades-old strategy of the Firm is the maintenance of a strong banking and finance expertise. From its inception the Firm acted for local institutional lenders and banks in traditional financing but following the country's post-independence industrial development, the Firm built and continues to maintain strong relationships with international banks, financial institutions, lending agencies, sovereign states and global development institutions by acting as the local Counsel alongside international and regional counsel in large scale multi-jurisdictional financings.
Over the years the Firm has acted in upstream financing of onshore and maritime exploration, mid-stream LNG Plants and downstream gas processing, methanol, fertilizer, urea and ammonia plants. Outside the energy sector it has acted in financings of steel, desalination, paper, food and beverage plants, residential, retail and commercial construction projects and aircraft leasing and finance. The Firm has also acted as lead Counsel in Bond issues by local conglomerates as well as the Trinidad and Tobago and other Caribbean Governments.
