Senior associate Ulugbek Abdullaev, who is especially experienced in corporate work, assisted on this matter, and advised Çalık Enerji on the $1.6bn construction of two power plants in the Namangan and Navoi regions. Outside of projects work, the firm is active in banking, with Yunusov advising China Development Bank on a $250m financing extension to the National Bank for Foreign Economic Activity of Uzbekistan, as well as advising Landesbank-Baden Württemberg on the Uzbek law aspects of financing to support SMEs in the country.
