Andrew Roche - Latham & Watkins LLP

Within: Projects and energy – Foreign firms

Latham & Watkins LLP's 'strong project finance practice' is 'the one to go for', according to one client. The practice has an outstanding track record in power, including large-scale geothermal projects, and integrated LNG and gas-fired projects. It has also impressed in LNG liquefaction and petrochemicals projects. The team is at the forefront of Indonesia power deals, is dominant in Pakistan and Bangladesh gas-to-power projects, and has experienced an uptick in engagements from Vietnam and Myanmar. It continues to have a key role in advising the sponsors on the Cirebon 2 expansion project, a 1,000MW coal-fired power plant in West Java, Indonesia. It also advised Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC), Nippon Export and Investment Insurance and the commercial lenders on the $3.35bn financing for the development of the Tanjung Jati B 5 and 6 coal-fired power project expansion in Java, Indonesia. Stephen McWilliams is a big name in the sector; Andrew Roche is 'very commercial', 'technically very strong' and is 'great in negotiations and managing relationships'. Clarinda Tjia-Dharmadi is also a key name on Indonesia projects.
