Project Finance & Acquisition Finance

Project Finance

Turkey’s government set out an ambitious agenda of mega-projects to contribute to the 2023 centennial (including a USD100 billion pipeline of projects related to highways, bridges, airports, power plants and other energy projects). Infrastructure projects and project finance work will continue to be a key driver of Turkey’s economic development in the coming years.

Every large-scale project brings its own challenges and requires a unique set of knowledge, experience, and skills. Understanding the need for well-drafted financing documentation that protects the interests of all parties concerned is crucial for the success of any project.

At Akol we design our project teams around the specific needs of our clients. This combined with our commercial, pragmatic, and innovative approach allows us to provide fully-integrated services to guide our clients through all aspects of a project’s development, financing, construction, and operation. 

Our legal skill-set includes:

  • advising on the most effective project legal structure, often in liaison with relevant authorities, and always with our client’s commercial needs at the forefront
  • drafting and negotiating joint ventures, project and concession agreements, loan agreements, direct agreements, security or sponsor support agreements
  • drafting and structuring of project finance security packages

Acquisition Finance

Many strategic clients and investors are turning to acquisition finance in Turkey to leverage their M&A transactions.  Whilst Turkish financial assistance rules can cause complexities, both international and local banks (with strong balance sheets) have been willing to offer acquisition financing.

Acquisition Finance is a key specialty of our firm.  We have a strong track-record and experience that has gained us the ability to move swiftly through transactions and to suggest creative structuring solutions for banks and borrowers alike.
