LONDON, October 1, 2021: Seyfi Can Kandemir, who focuses on international project finance transactions, particularly within the infrastructure, power, mining, and oil and gas sectors, joins Morgan Lewis today as a partner resident in London. He arrives from White & Case.

Seyfi Can advises sponsors, developers, multilateral lending and development agencies, international financial institutions, export credit agencies, and commercial banks in project and international finance, including corporate and hybrid style financings and concession financings. His representations span developed and emerging markets throughout Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and North America.

“As worldwide governments look to stimulus plans, Seyfi Can’s broad geographical practice is important to help inform and guide our global clients in their project finance transactions,” said Firm Chair Jami McKeon. “His focus on the international energy and infrastructure sector, including in emerging markets, will be key as they rebuild and recover from the pandemic.”   

Seyfi Can joins Morgan Lewis’s global project finance, infrastructure, and natural resources team operating in key energy and financial centers around the world. His arrival follows expansion of the international team in recent years with hires throughout Europe and the United States, including Ayesha Waheed in London and Jennifer Josefson in Moscow, with combined experience on matters spanning all continents.

“Seyfi Can’s arrival represents an expansion of our global project finance, infrastructure, natural resources, and energy capabilities” said Steve Browne, leader of Morgan Lewis’s global corporate and business transactions practice. “He will work closely with our team around the world to assist our clients in achieving their goals.”

“We are delighted to welcome Seyfi Can in London,” said Frances Murphy, managing partner of the London office. “His practice is a great fit with our focus on international energy and infrastructure matters across a range of practice areas, including corporate, finance, and litigation.”
