Team Leader

Uri Mandel


As Israel’s leading firm in Project Finance (PFI), LM has been involved over the past 15 years in almost all large-scale national project in the strategic infrastructure sector, including desalination plants, highways, energy and mass transit projects. LM has unmatched experience in accompanying mission-critical infrastructure projects, based on tenders issued by the government and financed by the private sector (Public Private Partnerships). The firm’s activity in PFI projects is headed by Noa Meidan, one of Israel’s foremost experts in this field.

As PFI is inherently multi-disciplinary, it draws on the diverse skills, experience and expertise of the members of the firm’s project finance team. The firm provides a full range of services such as translating the financial model into legal documents , ongoing counsel throughout the entire life cycle of the project, and handling administrative law issues while negotiating the project deal with domestic and international parties.

The expertise of YL has been recognized by a number of prestigious global guides such as Chambers Global and Legal500, as well as domestically by both D&B and BDI in their practice area guides for many years.

Based on the firm’s proven success in providing legal services for five desalination projects, the firm participated in creating the de facto model and established “Best Practices” methodology for executing and financing PPP-based desalination projects. In addition, LM was recently selected by the Accountant General of the State of Israel to formulate the “Standard Form” tender documents and concession agreement for all PFIPPP projects which will be published by the State of Israel, with the aim of introducing a unified standard for projects of this type.

In addition to representing and advising government ministries in major PFI/ BOT infrastructure projects, such as transportation projects and five desalination projects, the firm’s skills have also been recognized by leading banking institutions, which have chosen LM to represent them in major infrastructure projects, such as co-generation power plants, photo-voltaic power plants and other construction projects..
