He also has experience of privatisations, joint ventures, corporate acquisitions and venture capital transactions, including corporate structures, shareholders agreements and commercial contracts.
Over the years David has worked on transactions throughout the world ranging from power projects in Jamaica, India, Pakistan and the Philippines, petrochemical plants in Turkey and Bangladesh, process plants in Thailand and Turkey, mining projects in Uzbekistan, Turkey and Malaysia, as well as hospitals, power stations, roads and water treatment plants in the UK. Many of the non-UK deals were export credit financed transactions and, in this regard, David has worked with or for ECGD, Coface, JEXIM/JBIC, USEXIM, EDC and SACE on several occasions.
