Leaders in mature and emerging markets across all infrastructure classes
With over 150 infrastructure lawyers across six continents, we deliver transactional and contentious legal services to the world’s most high profile and complex infrastructure projects.
Over the last 10 years we have created an exceptionally strong and diversified infrastructure group, both through organic growth and by attracting leading lawyers in the sector. We have an established footprint in developed markets and a leading reputation for adapting and delivering this expertise in emerging markets, across all infrastructure asset classes.
Whether procuring project services (as a government client, a developer, investor or funder), or supplying them (as a contractor, consultant or facilities manager), our solutions driven service, based on both commercial acumen and technical expertise, is focused on achieving our clients’ goals.
With significant capabilities in both the litigious and non-contentious aspects of the industry, we offer clients a rounded perspective – whether at the front end of developments or when disputes occur. Furthermore, where appointed as project counsel, our involvement enables risk to be mitigated and issues to be resolved before they develop into formal disputes or ensures that clients are well positioned should disputes arise.
Our dispute resolution team covers all aspects of the infrastructure industry.
Clyde & Co has one of the largest global dispute resolution practices with a highly acclaimed international arbitration practice, we have successfully harnessed the firm's intrinsic sector knowledge into our high functioning disputes capability.
Our infrastructure specialists work in tandem with litigators from across the extended Clyde & Co dispute resolution practice in order to provide the best possible advice in one client-focused team. We leverage this offering to successfully mitigate and minimise the potential for disputes before projects commence and proactively assist on high risk elements, such as procurement and financing.
Due to the dynamic nature of the infrastructure market and operating environments projects invariably encounter some form of dispute. We help clients devise appropriate and proportionate response strategies and assist with navigating the range of dispute mechanisms - from early settlement of claims, mediation, international arbitration (particularly ICC) and conciliation to adjudication and litigation.
We understand the importance of practical, business orientated advice and are there to support our infrastructure clients at every step of the way.
