Today’s guest post is by Scott J. Arrington, a partner in the law firm McDermott Will & Emery in the United States. He represents clients in connection with infrastructure development, acquisitions, dispositions and financings, with a focus on international projects in the oil and gas, petrochemical, power and mining industries.
