International Financial Law Review (IFLR) honored global law firm White & Case LLP with two Asia-Pacific Awards, announced on March 25. The Firm received awards for "Project Finance Team of the Year" and, for the second consecutive year, "Project Finance Deal of the Year."
This year, IFLR recognized White & Case for its work advising Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners on the US$3 billion (NT$90 billion) project financing of the 589 MW Changfang & Xidao offshore wind project located off the coast of Changhua County, Taiwan. Scheduled for completion by 2024, the Changfang & Xidao offshore wind project will provide clean energy to more than 600,000 households in Taiwan.
"These were among the largest project financings to close in Asia in the last two years,"says Brendan Quinn (Melbourne), Head of Project Finance, Asia Pacific. "Our lead roles in each of these transactions and the back-to-back wins attest to the fact that we are recognized market leaders in the Asia-Pacific project finance market."
