  • Latin American Solar Deal of the Year 2023 — Latham represented BlackRock in the mezzanine private placement of notes for a portfolio of utility-scale and distributed generation (PMGD) solar projects developed by renewable energy company Solek.

Latham separately represented Banco de Crédito e Inversiones (BCI) as VAT lender, collateral agent, and depositary bank in the multi-source project financing.
