At the forefront of project finance in Australia, having played a key role as legal advisers on many of Australia's most significant projects over the last decade. We have also been involved in major project financing transactions worldwide.


Clayton Utz project finance lawyers are leading project finance advisers to both the private sector and government because of our ability to think laterally and assist in resolving issues that arise in both the structuring and negotiating phases of transactions. We advise the full spectrum of participants in project financing transactions as well public private partnerships (PPP). Our clients include senior debt financiers, mezzanine debt financiers, capital market arrangers, borrowers, sponsors and other equity participants, and monoline insurers.

We provide clients with a totally integrated service on all aspects of project financing. Our close working relationship with the firm's dedicated Major Projects Group allows us to cover all the bases and provide a team with the necessary depth and experience to resource and manage large transactions, regardless of the time-frame. Our core team is supported by leading experts in related areas of law including construction, property law, including native title, regulatory, public equity raising, environment and planning and tax and stamp duty.

In addition to our leading Australian project finance practice, our team has extensive international experience, having worked on significant project financings worldwide across a broad range of sectors including infrastructure, power, energy and resources.
