Social infrastructure

Supporting social infrastructure projects from planning to delivery

Our social infrastructure team advises clients from project conception all the way through to operation across the entire sector, including PPP/PFI, health, housing, education, recreation and other community services.

We advise on all elements at the transactional stage, including project finance, planning, real estate, project agreements, construction and facilities management.

On the disputes side, we pride ourselves on our ability to devise appropriate and proportionate response strategies, helping our clients navigate the range of dispute options – from early settlement of claims and mediation, to adjudication, to international arbitration (particularly ICC) and litigation.

Public and private organisations tasked with the provision of social infrastructure face distinct challenges and the obstacles to successfully delivering them are heavily influenced by local factors. Our experience delivering social infrastructure projects in developed markets is second to none and we are applying that knowledge in emerging markets, combining international standards with regional knowledge.
