Public Private Partnership Lawyers

“Public-private partnerships”(PPPs) is a recent expression covering highly varied systems that relate to building, operating and managing infrastructure, facilities or public services. These systems derive either from longstanding legal traditions in France and other administrative law countries – of which the most representative example is the concession, or from an adaptation of Anglo-Saxon project financing practices that have recently been introduced in France to realise public projects. Implementing PPPs requires a solid understanding of the diverse legal and tax implications. In particular, they call for expertise based on in-depth knowledge of classic administrative law in addition to law and taxation applying to innovative financing techniques. Our Practice AreasWe cover all types of PPP contractual structures:  Delegating public services : (concessions, leases)  Built-Operate-Transfer (BOT) arrangements Administrative long-term leases and long-term leases for hospitals Permits authorising temporary occupancy of public land – Leases with purchase option Partnership agreements Comprehensive public procurement contracts Complex contractual structures  PPPs may be formed in areas as varied as:  Construction and property management - Offices and public housing - Schools - Hospitals and emergency units - Police stations - Courts and prisons  Culture, sports and leisure - Museums and cultural facilities - Athletic centres - Leisure centres  Energy - Town heating - Hydrocarbon transformation - Renewable energy Environment - Water and wastewater treatment - Waste processing Municipal services - Public lighting - Street furniture Transport - Ports - Airports - Road and train networks. Our ApproachFrom the design phase to the implementation stage, we assist private and public organisations in all stages of their national and international projects.
