Projects and Finance

Ethiopia has seen some of the most eye-catching infrastructure developments in its history. Spearheaded by a Government committed to developing its infrastructure to support the country’s rapid economic development, many of these mega infrastructure developments in highways, railways and energy have been possible because of the multibillion loans extended to developers and guarantees provided by the Ethiopian Government. MLA lawyers have been at the forefront of advising lenders of sovereign debt on the validity and enforceability of sovereign loans and sovereign guarantees. 

Some of the services which MLA has provided include:

  • Advising foreign lenders in relation to the extension of sovereign debt, loan credit facilities and sovereign debt guarantees in connection with the construction of railways in Ethiopia
  • Advising on the validity and enforceability of sovereign debt guarantees and loan credit facilities under Ethiopian law
  • Reviewing sovereign debt guarantee documents and loan credit facilities
  • Writing confirmation letters in relation to buyer credit loan agreements
  • Writing legal opinions on the validity and enforceability of sovereign debt guarantees and loan credit facilities under Ethiopian law
