L'expérience de Robin Mizrahi comprend des transactions dans les secteurs énergétique, des transports, pétrolier et gazier, minier et industriel. Il a agi en tant que conseiller auprès de sponsors, prêteurs et entités publiques pour ce qui est de la mise en œuvre et du financement de projets d'envergure, ainsi que d'acquisitions et privatisations, se concentrant sur les marchés émergents, notamment l'Afrique, l'Europe orientale et le Moyen-Orient.

« Robin Mizrahi apporte de riches compétences juridiques à notre cabinet et au bureau londonien, consolidant ainsi nos capacités en financement de projets pour les clients intéressés dans les marchés émergents du monde entier », a déclaré l'associé directeur de Baker Botts, Andrew Baker. « Fort d'une excellente expérience à travers l'Afrique, Robin est un ajout intéressant à notre équipe chargée des Projets internationaux et sa nomination témoigne de notre engagement à attirer des avocats extrêmement compétents au sein de notre cabinet. »

Dans le cadre de son travail approfondi sur les marchés émergents, il a agi comme conseiller dans le cadre de plusieurs transactions et projets impliquant d'importantes institutions de développement et des organismes de crédit à l'exportation, notamment :

  • Il a représenté Sithe Energies et Industrial Promotion Services (société affiliée d'Aga Khan Fund for Economic Development) sur le développement et le financement par emprunt à hauteur de 682 millions de dollars américains du projet d'énergie hydroélectrique de 250 MW de Bujagali sur le Nil, en Ouganda. Il s'agit de l'un des plus importants financements de projets dans le secteur énergétique en Afrique subsaharienne, impliquant 10 prêteurs avant syndication ; et
  • Il a représenté un consortium composé d'AES et Mitsui sur les offres d'achat réussies pour le projet de centrale électrique au gaz de 370 MW d'Amman East - le premier producteur indépendant en Jordanie - et du projet énergétique HFO IPP4 de 250 MW, toujours en Jordanie.

« Nous sommes ravis de la nomination de Robin Mizrahi, qui vient confirmer notre engagement à faire de notre bureau londonien l'une des principales ressources pour affaires transactionnelles et financement de projets en Europe », a expliqué Steven Wardlaw, associé chargé du bureau londonien de Baker Botts. « Nous continuerons à recruter des avocats talentueux afin de proposer des services de qualité supérieure sur le vaste éventail de problèmes complexes auxquels sont confrontés nos clients au quotidien. Nous anticipons que la demande en matière de financement de projets restera très importante dans les économies émergentes qui prévoient des investissements sans précédent dans leurs infrastructures. Avec l'embauche de Robin, nous sommes bien placés pour de telles opportunités. »

Outre son travail sur des projets de financement et des privatisations, Robin Mizrahi représente des clients en matière de règlementation commerciale et antitrust, et des affaires liées aux fusions et acquisitions.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
