DWMR was among the recipients of The American Lawyer Global Legal Award for 2015, in the category of Global Finance Deal of the Year: Project Finance (The American Lawyer, ALM, July 23, 2015). The Global Legal Awards honor law firms and in-house legal departments that have “played a substantial role in the most distinguished international legal work performed between January 1, 2014 and April 15, 2015,” according to ALM.
DWMR was honored as part of the legal team representing Freeport LNG in connection with Freeport LNG’s debt and equity financing of a natural gas liquefaction and export facility at Quintana Island, Texas. The transaction involved numerous equity and debt investors with aggregate commitments of approximately $11 billion. The transaction constituted the largest fully non-recourse construction project in history.
The Freeport LNG finance project was also named the “Americas Deal of the Year” for 2014 by Project Finance International (Thomson Reuters, Yearbook 2015, 2015).
The DWMR team representing Freeport LNG included James Mann, Celina Romero, Joe Cain, J.D. Munn, and Don Lewis.
