A 'fit for purpose' infrastructure and transport industry can have a direct and positive impact on economic and social prosperity.
Over the next 20 years there is a pressing need for infrastructure to be replaced, upgraded or built in both developed and emerging markets as the rapid pace of globalisation continues. Some estimates put the total investment needed in existing and new infrastructure at tens of trillions of U.S. dollars.
Allen & Overy provides clients in the infrastructure and transport sector with both industry insight and imaginative legal advice that will help meet these challenges. The group comprises over 220 sector specialists on six continents working in partnership with clients to help them achieve their goals.
We view infrastructure and transport assets in the same way as our clients. Our approach combines disciplines and provides legal solutions for all advice needed on any infrastructure investment or activity across a variety of sub-sectors. We cover the full asset life cycle from creation to acquisition, the raising of sponsor or debt capital to restructuring and portfolio management and asset sales. Specifically, we work on major infrastructure project financings, mergers and acquisitions (both public and private) relating to brownfield infrastructure assets, securitisations, asset financings, refinancings, regulatory matters, infrastructure fund formation, arbitration and litigation and construction projects.
Our perceptive advice and work on critical transactions means we are recognised as the leading global provider of legal services to the infrastructure and transport sector. In recent years we have been named 'Global Infrastructure Firm of the Year' by Infrastructure Investor and 'Global Legal Adviser of the Year' by Infrastructure Journal.
Allens is a leading international law firm. Together with Linklaters, our global network spans 40 offices across 28 countries.
Named Australian Law Firm of the Year (Chambers Asia Pacific, 2017) we make it our business to know our clients' businesses. We have built our reputation on the quality of our people, the strength of our client relationships and our innovative approach to complex work. We combine technical excellence with commercial understanding to provide the best insights and whether you're a global multinational or a start-up with a bright idea, our commitment to outstanding service is the same.
Bank of China Limited Sydney Branch was established in 1942 and was the first Chinese bank to establish operations in Australia. Since resuming banking operations in Australia in 1985, it has dedicated itself to promoting the Australia-China trade and economic relationship. Building on decades of local market financial experience and expertise, Bank of China Limited Sydney Branch offers a comprehensive range of financial products to our customers, and to date is the only Chinese bank operating in Australia holding a full service banking license to provide financial services to both retail and wholesale customers.
Bank of China’s business scope in Australia has expanded rapidly along with growing market influence. Today the Bank has established 10 offices in 4 states, viz. New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland and Western Australia and has become the leading institution for RMB business in Australia. In November 2014 the People’s Bank of China designated Bank of China Sydney Branch as the RMB clearing bank in Australia.
Bank of China’s extensive banking relationships with both Chinese and local customers have markedly enhanced its visibility and influence in the Australia’s banking community. It has also become an active lender in Australia’s infrastructure and renewable energy sectors in which the Bank is committed to supporting long-term sustainable development.
