Energy, Infrastructure and Resources

We have been heavily involved in advising on most major energy, infrastructure and mineral resources projects in Jordan over the past ten years. We have advised, and continue to advise the Government of Jordan, major renewable energy companies, construction companies and lenders on the financing, construction and operation of these projects.

Chambers Global singles us out for “handling significant projects in the energy sector”.
