Funding is the most important element in sustaining the life cycle of any commercial enterprise or project. As an international law firm, our lawyers have been fortunate enough to be at the heart of corporate finance challenges acting, in particular, on behalf of corporations that require funding to sustain their continuous operation, development or expansion. Furthermore, LXL advises lenders through its multi-disciplinary practice on both UK and cross-border, multi-jurisdictional projects.

The breadth of our team enables LXL to provide clients with legal experience and comprehensive sector knowledge in aerospace, transport (such as rail, roads, ports, and airports), mining, water, telecoms, defence and energy including oil and gas, renewables and power.

We advise private, public and State-owned companies on the structuring of their financing arrangements, and support them in navigating through the legal minefield of project finance whether it is in relation to the development of an LNG export terminal in Egypt, the construction of major hydro power projects in Africa and Europe, or the construction of a major power project in Iraq.

Our areas of work include authorisation, asset and wealth management, banking and finance, including banking regulation, change of control, documentation (compliance and contractual), investment funds, Islamic finance and sustainable finance, sanctions and export controls, structured trade, and international trade.
