Richard Puttré represents lenders, underwriters and borrowers in conventional and complex financing structures, with a primary focus on cross-border project finance transactions. He counsels financial institutions, project sponsors and investors in the development, financing, acquisition and disposition of infrastructure companies and assets throughout the world, particularly in the United States and Latin America.
Much of Richard's recent experience has focused on the renewable energy sector, representing the sponsors in connection with a hydroelectric generation project in Panama, three photovoltaic solar plants in Peru, a wind power project in the Dominican Republic and a photovoltaic solar project in Chile. His most recent transactions have involved multilateral financing entities, including the Inter-American Development Bank, International Finance Corporation, Overseas Private Investment Corporation and Corporación Andina de Fomento as well as development finance institutions from Spain, Germany, France and the Netherlands. He also represented the lenders in the leveraged lease financing of the Nevada Solar One Project and in connection with various wind power projects throughout the United States.
Richard's practice also involves the development and financing of traditional infrastructure projects. He represented the lenders in the financing of the San José-Caldera toll road in Costa Rica and the sponsors in the development and financing of the Vespucio Sur toll road in Chile. He also has been actively involved in the American public-private partnership sector, representing various parties in connection with infrastructure projects in Illinois, Indiana, Colorado, Ohio and Virginia.
