Project Finance, PPP, and Infrastructure Development

Project Finance, PPP, and Infrastructure Development

Project finance and infrastructure development in Rwanda has grown considerably since 2000. At Colin&Colin, we recognize that through the effective participation of the private sector in infrastructure development and the implementation of limited-recourse projects, the government can more effectively achieve its economic and social goals. Colin&Colin is ready to assist both the private sector and public agencies in their efforts.

Colin&Colin’s Project Finance and Infrastructure Development Practice team uses its knowledge and experience to provide clients with the highest quality in-depth legal and strategic advice on all aspects of the development, financing and operation of a project from implementation to completion.

Our lawyers are incredibly experienced in advising sponsors, creditors, banks, credit agencies, underwriters, advisors, special purpose vehicles, construction companies, multilateral institutions and public sector bodies. Colin&Colin’s professionals have extensive experience in the infrastructure development and financing of projects across a wide range of industries, including transport, energy, water and wastewater management, oil and gas, mining, manufacturing, construction, and social infrastructure. Given the size of the financial resources committed and the impact that these projects regularly have on the local economy, along with the number of local and foreign parties involved in the project development and implementation, many of the projects involving our specialists can be described as high-profile and complex.
