Receives praise for his 'detail-oriented approach' and 'ability to deal simultaneously with many complicated issues and many different parties'

Chambers Latin America

Christopher has built an active practice representing lenders and borrowers in corporate financings, project financings, and other financing and restructuring transactions. In recent years, he has counseled clients on financing matters with an aggregate value of more than $10 billion. Christopher also has significant experience in representing buyers, sellers, and financing parties in acquisition and divestiture transactions.

Christopher's experience includes a broad range of financing structures, including those provided by commercial banks, multilateral agencies, export and other official creditors, and capital markets. Christopher's practice includes a particular emphasis on energy and infrastructure-related work - having advised on the financing, development, and restructuring of more than 10,000 MW of conventional and renewable power generation and groundbreaking transactions in water and transport sectors. His experience within the power sector includes generation, transmission and distribution, and he frequently provides counsel on a broad array of other infrastructure and industrial matters, including rigs, LNG facilities, gas pipelines, water treatment facilities, toll roads, port infrastructure, and manufacturing facilities.

Christopher has extensive experience in Latin America, where his fluency in Portuguese and Spanish, in addition to English, enables him to negotiate and review contracts in all three languages. He has represented clients in several of the most innovative and noteworthy transactions in the region, having led more than a dozen Deals of the Year and having led transactions in the United States, Brazil, Mexico, Chile, Peru, Colombia, Argentina, the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Nicaragua, and elsewhere around the globe.

In December of 2012, Christopher was named on Law 360's list of Project Finance MVPs. The Legal 500 includes Christopher as one of the six leading individuals listed for Latin American project finance and the 2013 edition of Latin Lawyer 250 names Christopher as a key project finance practitioner. Chambers Global notes that Christopher is a detail-oriented attorney who excels at structuring his way around problems, and is a nice guy to work with. Christopher is also listed among the top international trade and finance lawyers in the 2013 edition of The Best Lawyers in America, the 2012 edition of The International Who's Who of Project Finance Lawyers, the 2013 edition of The International Who's Who of Business Lawyers and the Project Finance section of the 2013 edition of Guide to the World's Leading Banking Finance and Transactional Lawyers.
