DLA Piper has been jointly appointed to the panel of Green Africa Power alongside Stephenson Harwood.
GAP is a facility and investment vehicle and part of the Private Infrastructure Development Group. Its mandate is to promote the development of renewable power generation in Africa, and the UK government is capitalising GAP with initial funding of £95m towards costs and investment.
DLA Piper and Stephenson Harwood will each advise GAP on projects where an investment is being considered. Additionally, Stephenson Harwood has been retained to give more general legal support for non-project-related matters. Rob Salter, Stuart McMillan and Natasha Luther-Jones will lead the DLA Piper team.
