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 global contentious and non-contentious employment law knowledge and insight enables us to advise both public and private providers on a wide range of workplace issues across the infrastructure sector.
Leveraging the global strength of our employment, pensions & immigration practice, our employment lawyers help infrastructure clients navigate through the complex and diverse legal and regulatory issues facing the sector.
We provide advice across the full spectrum of workplace issues, from day-to-day advisory work, to managing the employment aspects of project and transactional work. Our dispute resolution acumen is second to none and we routinely advise on unfair dismissal claims, reputational whistle-blowing and discrimination claims, dealing with restrictive covenant injunctions and other High Court matters.
As one of the few global practices encompassing a dedicated pensions and immigration team, we provide a complete service to clients managing infrastructure projects across different jurisdictions.
From recruitment to redundancy, the combination of a sizeable international employment team and network of international offices means that we provide developers and stakeholders with relevant and tailored employment advice.
