Belt and Road Initiative

China's Belt and Road Initiative has attracted global business and media attention as one of the largest and most ambitious infrastructure project initiatives the world has ever seen. The opportunities this presents for investors, developers, contractors, financiers… the list goes on…. are substantial. The projects are invariably large, and complex, and have long lifespans. The legal issues need to be understood, and the documentation needs to be right.

Through navigating regional complexity, we create commercial solutions to deliver a competitive advantage for our clients.
