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.
The comprehensive skill set and cross-sector track record of our social infrastructure group ensures that we strategically support clients from project planning to project delivery.
Governments tasked with the provision of social infrastructure face distinct challenges. We frequently advise both public and private sector groups throughout the world on the funding related to building and operating facilities and assets.
From project inception to post completion, we advise on transactional elements including PPP/PFI transactions, project finance, bespoke construction agreements and planning. On the contentious side, we resolve disputes using all forms of dispute resolution including early settlement of claims, adjudication and litigation.
Our social infrastructure group successfully deploy knowledge gained in the developed markets to deliver projects in emerging economies. They recognise that whilst the range of physical facilities serving communities are relatively consistent globally, the obstacles to successfully delivering them are heavily influenced by domestic factors. As a result, our integrated team combines international standards and regional knowledge to assist clients in delivering health, housing, education, recreation and other community services.
