Project and Project Financing
Thapar and Associates Law Firm has been at the forefront of the changes sweeping through the Indian landscape in the infrastructure area over the last ten years. We have specifically advised on and participated intensely in the structuring, contracting, financing and project implementation of power, telecommunication, satellite-based communication, oil exploration, under sea broadband communication cable and road building projects. We have represented promoters, financiers and equipment suppliers.
In performing our assigned task, we have an interdisciplinary focus, and bring together corporate, finance, tax, real estate and environmental skills. As a result, we are experienced in coordinating and managing the interdisciplinary efforts required to successfully completing non-recourse project financing, transfer, sale or leaseback, commercial paper program or other financing vehicle relating to project development. Our attorneys have experience of the complex web of regulatory, tax, transactional and environmental issues arising out of these transactions and, as a result, often have a decided advantage in the drafting and negotiation of key business points and documents.
Naturally, these skills translate into projects of lesser complexity such as shopping malls, manufacturing facilities and residential townships.
Illustratively, we are experienced in

• Cable, Wireless-in-local-loop, mobile telephony and paging service projects.
