  • Paris is one of Clifford Chance’s main worldwide projects hubs. The impressive practice offers a deep bench of experienced partners and counsels who are well versed in acting for all types of stakeholders; sponsors, developers, lenders and governmental and other public entities. In France, the firm is one of the-go-to-practices for large infrastructure projects and currently involved in major transport, airport, telecoms and energy projects, including many landmark offshore projects. On the international scene, the practice is particularly active in Africa and notably advising on port and airport projects as well as on many solar projects and a biomass power plant project in Côte d'Ivoire, the largest of its kind in Africa. Several landmark hydropower projects in Cameroon and Madagascar and strategic oil and gas projects are also included in the caseload. In addition to its strong focus on Africa, the team also handles work in other regions, including Europe and Asia. Anthony Giustini, Nikolaï Eatwell, Delphine Siino Courtin, Richard Tomlinson and Daniel Zerbib as well as public law experts David Préat and Gauthier Martin rank among the country's first-class practitioners.
