Market leading PPP/PFI experience across transactional and contentious matters

Clyde & Co is recognised as a leader across the changing PPP/PFI environment. Our PPP/PFI team advises clients across a wide range of sectors from energy to transport to social infrastructure.

We partner globally with private and public sector clients, covering the planning, financing, developing, operating, and (if required) dispute resolution, stages of a project. We often act as an extension to our clients' in-house teams providing support across the full project life cycle.

Our global projects and construction lawyers recognise that infrastructure projects and market needs differ from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, and from sector to sector, and that each project comes with its own demands and challenges. We also take our experience gained in developed markets and apply it in emerging markets to deliver comprehensive solutions around the world.

Our ability to get to the heart of the matter, to understand the long term collaborative relationships critical to the success of a PPP project, and to find a sensible commercial solution at every stage makes us invaluable project counsel.
