Financial and corporate

AELEX has solid practices across financial and corporate but is perhaps best known for its oil and gas practice.

In banking and finance the firm has acted on local and international credit facilities and structured financings. The firm was also active on project finance matters.

In the capital markets the firm has acted on IPOs and bond issues and though most of its specific work and clients are confidential it can be said that the firm advised the likes of Alpine investments.

In M&A, two clear highlights include work for Helios Investment in relation to the acquisition by TA Associates and work for Coca-Cola on the acquisition of 40% equity in a producer of juice and value-added dairy brands in Nigeria.

In the projects space the firm has acted on oil and gas and port projects.
