Projects figures spike
Projects figures spike

Amarchand Mangaldas maintained status quo as project finance leader for the third year running and reported a greater overall deal revenue since last year, according to data provider dealogic’s year end table for 2013.

Project finance boutique Link Legal which had reported a strong performance last year slipped from the table completely this year to give the second place to Desai & Diwanji, which was not among last year’s 10 frontrunners from India.

Amarchand acted on 27 deals worth over $10bn as compared to 2012’s 24 deals worth $7.4bn, and Desai & Diwanji acted on 20 deals worth over $6bn.

AZB & Partners was present on the project finance league table for the first time in three years, sitting at number four, after Luthra with its three deals worth over $3bn. Luthra’s eight smaller deals valued similar to AZB’s overall deal value.

Amarchand, Desai & Diwanji, Luthra & Luthra, AZB and SJ Law Advocates & Solicitors were the only law firms to make it to the Asia Pacific top ten.
