Projects in Jordan

Projects, Jordan

Eversheds Sutherland Jordan is a leading player in the international projects and infrastructure finance field. Our project law team can provide you with both legal experience and an award winning project management approach.

Jordan is currently a hotspot for major projects. Whilst investment and infrastructure is high on the agenda of many governments, a willingness to invest does not mean a willingness to waste money.

There is a need to manage time and cost to get the best results. If projects are to be well run then quality must start from the contracts and run right through until the end product. It is crucial to have excellent project lawyers who understand the legal landscape, bring parties together, ensure deadlines are met and risks are anticipated and reduced.

Eversheds Sutherlands' project law team has the resources to handle the complexity that comes with many regional projects. Above all, we bring real knowledge of the Middle East. We know how things get done, how contracts are agreed and how projects can be driven forward.

Quality and experience in Projects

Our Project law experts have the strength and depth to ensure the successful delivery of your projects and transactions. As an integrated group working in Jordan, the Middle East and the rest of the world, we have extensive experience of managing cross border matters and working in politically sensitive countries and emerging markets.

Global strength is matched by an innovative attitude. We believe that we have a responsibility to help you manage your legal budgets, ensuring you receive the most appropriate level of legal advice and value for money.
