International legal practice Osborne Clarke has advised key client, John Laing Investments on its acquisition of a wind farm based in Wales, from Spanish firm Gamesa. The financing of the acquisition was partly provided by Santander Global Corporate Banking, and was one of the last large onshore deals to attract a Renewable Obligation Certificate before they close in March 2017.

John Laing is an international originator, active investor and manager of infrastructure projects. Its business is focused on major transport, social and environmental infrastructure projects awarded under governmental public-private partnership (PPP) programmes, and renewable energy projects, across a range of international markets including the UK, Europe, Asia Pacific and North America.

The Osborne Clarke team which advised John Laing was led by Energy Projects Partner James Watson, who was assisted by real estate Partner Shane Toal, project finance Associate Director Caroline Saul, energy projects Senior Associate Deborah Harvey and corporate Associate John Jarvis.

Osborne Clarke advises long-standing client John Laing Investments regularly across multiple jurisdictions, most recently acting on its acquisition of wind park Horath from Schöller Wind GmbH in Germany.
