Cambodia has a significant number of national and international commercial banks and monetary financial institutions operating in a thriving economy which is experiencing strong year-on-year growth. The success of the banking sector here is in part due to it being arguably the best regulated of all the investment sectors. A robust regulator means that investors in the sector need to be well-managed and very mindful of the compliance regime imposed on all operators.
Project financing also requires that appropriate due diligence is undertaken to ensure that target companies and projects are compliant with the relevant regulatory regime and all transactional documentation is fully valid under Cambodian law, and protective of the financier’s interests to the fullest extent of the law.
Our firm is a panel law firm for many of the top international banks in Cambodia and advises them on the legal framework and compliance issues. We also act for foreign financiers of local projects, specifically in the property development and infrastructure sectors.
We advise on all aspects of structuring, negotiating and documentation of all types of banking and financing transactions. With the broad expertise of our financing lawyers, we are adept at handling highly complex transactions, including those that cross borders and legal regimes.
