S&C At the Center of Global Infrastructure Trends

May 15-17, 2019
Cascais, Portugal, and New York City

S&C will participate in the Cambridge Forum on Global Infrastructure Investments, in Cascais, Portugal, on May 15-17.
S&C partner Melissa Sawyer will co-lead a panel titled, “Staying Unfazed – Practical Tips to Minimize Noise in Various Phases of the Deal.” Christopher Mann, head of the Firm’s global Infrastructure practice, will participate in the Forum with Melissa.
The Forum is an annual global meeting of elite private practice lawyers and senior in-house counsel from large institutional investors, sovereign wealth funds, other private funds and infrastructure operators who are experienced in investments in major global infrastructure projects. Meeting participants will undertake an analysis of common high-priority issues, share diverse international experiences and validate solutions within an accomplished peer-group. The goal is to foster a community of leading global experts to collaboratively review complex challenges and trends in foreign infrastructure M&A, while broadening collective insight and connections to aid future deal-making. 
On May 16-17, S&C will co-sponsor the Infra Latin America GRI 2019 conference in New York City.
S&C partner Werner Ahlers, a core member of the Firm’s Latin America practice and co-editor of Latin Lawyer’s “The Guide to Corporate Crisis Management, First Edition” will co-chair a panel titled, “Brownfield and M&A Opportunities – Right projects or right partners?” S&C has advised on many of the region’s most market-shaping transactions involving energy, power, natural resources, infrastructure, M&A and financing for a variety of players.
Infra Latin America will be the fourth installment of GRI Global Club’s annual gathering of senior level Latin American and international infrastructure investors, financiers, operators and their advisers. The event welcomes more than 300 participants to engage in productive and insightful discussions and to search for solutions for infrastructure development across the region. Participants will come from Latin America’s most active markets for infrastructure, including Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Panama, Peru and Uruguay.
