Jason Webber - White & Case LLP

Within: Project finance

White & Case LLP has a stellar reputation for LNG projects; New York-based Jason Webber and Washington DC-based Sean Johnson are acting for FLNG Liquefaction II on its private placement of $450m of investment-grade project bonds as part of the financing of the natural gas liquefaction and LNG export facility being constructed at Quintana Island near Texas. Additional mandates in the oil and gas sector were undertaken for national oil companies such as Saudi Aramco and Adnoc; New York-based Wendell Maddrey was part of an international team advising the former on its potential joint venture with PT Pertamina to expand and upgrade Pertamina’s Cilacap refinery in Indonesia. In the lender space, the practice regularly assists with projects in Latin America: Miami-based Carlos Viana and Jeannine Acevedo are advising the senior lenders, and Prudential as initial fixed-rate note purchaser, on a long-term project financing for the development of a 600km electricity transmission line in Chile; and Washington DC-based Ned Neaher is advising Banco Santander-Chile on the financing of the value added tax associated with the construction of two wind farm projects in Chile. The practice is led from New York by global practice head Arthur Scavone. Other key figures in that office are Clark Wohlferd and PPP specialist Dolly Mirchandani, who joined from Allen & Overy LLP.

White & Case LLP is ‘particularly good where there is a project finance element to deals’, and the team often features on international LNG projects. Other areas of expertise include M&A and insolvency; New York based co-chair Jason Webber acted for Global Infrastructure on its $1.8bn acquisition of Medallion Gathering & Processing. Clark Wohlferd (also in New York) is the other main contact.
