A few weeks ago, our Power, Projects & Infrastructure Partners, Nicholas Okafor & Adeola Sunmola, participated in a webinar alongside other lawyers from Sullivan & Cromwell led by Inosi Nyatta; Aleem Tharani of Bowmans, and Bahakal Abate of Aman Assefa & Associates. This webinar was the second part of a series of webinars organised by the Cyrus R. Vance Center for International Justice, in conjunction with USAID and Power Africa, as part of the virtual professional development workshops put together in an effort to improve the capacity of government legal support to energy project development and financing in Africa.
In the first part of this series, Nicholas and Adeola delivered a training to key stakeholders in the Nigerian power sector on the Challenges and Case Studies on Reaching Financial Close In Energy Project Development and Financing.
The most recent discussion, which focused on the Legal Aspects of Financial Models in Energy Project Financings, was with government lawyers and business teams in various electric power sector regulators across Africa.
