Our multi-disciplinary, international projects and infrastructure finance group has extensive experience advising on cross-border, multi-jurisdictional projects. We advise public and private sector bodies (including funders) on a wide range of domestic and international projects. We advise parties at all levels of the supply chain including government, sponsors, project companies, EPC and D&B contractors, multi-laterals, funders, banks and alternative lenders.

comprehensive sector knowledge in transport (including rail, roads, ports, airports), health, energy (including oil and gas, solar, wind, biomass, hydro, traditional generation and nuclear power), mining, water, telecoms, hospitals, education, housing, waste, custody centres, defence and sports

on-the-ground, competitively priced legal advice from across our network of 50 offices in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia.

Public and private sector: a balanced portfolio

Our practice is balanced between working for the private sector and for governments and agencies. This approach has enabled us to give the very best advice to our clients. We have a deep understanding of how the public sector thinks. Indeed, we spend a good deal of our time evaluating bids on behalf of governments. This means that when we are on the bid side, we can use this experience to help our clients shape and optimise their bid strategy.

We advise a large number of clients and have acted on several billion-dollar plus projects and on transactions in many jurisdictions.

Having successfully completed over 200 PFI/PPP schemes in various countries, we:

- have good relationships with key players in the PPP process and work closely with all of the major financial and technical advisers specialising in PFI

- are highly experienced at structuring complex projects in emerging markets

- understand the commercial positions of all shareholders in the PPP process and are able to create stable structures that address their respective concerns at the earliest opportunity.
