Infrastructure and Transportation

Our Transportation & Infrastructure lawyers have been involved in the development, acquisition, and financing of infrastructure assets for more than twenty years. We can advise from the initial joint venture agreement through the construction and financing of a project and have a detailed understanding of the contractual arrangements underpinning revenue generation.

Our experience spans every continent and includes private commercial projects, governmental concession-based development projects, and privatization of operational infrastructure assets through dispositions, financings, and long-term lease and concession arrangements. We advise developers and financiers on all aspects of infrastructure, including power generation projects, and rail facilities, and ports.

Whether our clients are developing projects, acquiring existing assets, or providing equity or debt financing for projects, our multidisciplinary attorneys provide creative and innovative solutions to extract additional value from each transaction and overcome the challenges inherent in financing large projects.
