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 transport infrastructure group applies first hand industry knowledge and experience for the benefit of clients operating in the sector
Transport infrastructure is pivotal to the prosperity of nations and failure to invest, develop and maintain assets can have a significant negative impact on a nation's development and their economic and social well-being.
Our global transport infrastructure team has a proven track record across all asset classes (particularly airports, ports, rail and road) and understand the nuances of working across both developed and emerging markets. Through our multi-disciplinary and integrated global offering, we can mobilise lawyers for large scale projects to provide dedicated and bespoke client teams – from high-speed rail networks in developed countries to deepwater ports in emerging markets.
We advise a broad range of market participants on all stages of transport infrastructure projects including procurement and financing (including PPP/PFI), construction, development, operations and maintenance and as a result, we have a footprint that mirrors our international client base. Moreover, our blend of transactional and contentious strengths ensures that clients receive the best possible advice in one client-focused team.
