Public Private Partnership Lawyers

Your lawyers for joint projects between the public and private sectors

CMS Germany offers comprehensive legal advice for stakeholders in infrastructure projects implemented jointly by the public sector and private firms as public private partnerships (PPP). Our clients include public-sector agencies on the one hand and private-sector investors/sponsors, banks and financial institutions on the other.

PPP projects are highly complex in legal terms. Accordingly, our advisory teams comprise lawyers from a wide range of legal disciplines, such as public law, public procurement law, construction law, corporate law, banking and finance law, employment law and tax law.

Backed by international experience

Our legal advice on PPP projects draws on a wealth of experience from other countries and jurisdictions. We benefit from longstanding close relationships with the other CMS offices, and particularly with CMS London.

For our clients, that means we work with them to develop a legally-robust tailor-made solution for each PPP project.

Service portfolio

Our core activities in the area of public private partnerships are:

  • Advice on designing projects with regard to the legal framework
  • Preparatory work and advising on invitations to tender and procurement procedures
  • Drafting and negotiating project and finance agreements
  • Sector expertise, particularly in relation to PPP projects involving infrastructure, construction and telecommunications
