Project financing and construction law are highly specialised areas of legal practice. They are intrinsically functional and pragmatic and require the combination of a multitasking group of professionals – owners, contractors, bankers, insurers, brokers, architects, engineers, geologists, surveyors, public authorities and lawyers – each bringing their own knowledge and perspective to the table. This year, we have contributions from four new jurisdictions in this year’s edition: India, Portugal, Saudi Arabia and Thailand. Although there is an increased perception that project financing and construction law are global issues, the local flavour offered by leading experts in 22 countries has shown us that to understand the world we must first make sense of what happens locally; to further advance our understanding of the law we must resist the modern view (and vice?) that all that matters is global and what is regional is of no importance.
